Quincy Shannon who addressed the crowd at Civic Center Park told KGNU’s Dave Ashton that the momentum created by the protests needs to sustain to create real change when it comes to policing in Colorado.

“We need cultural competency within the police department, we need to make sure that if an officer is reacting to a call in a certain area, that they have the level of competency to understand if I’m going into a Hispanic/Latino neighborhood, what are some of the values that they hold so that I’m not breaking those values,” he said.
