A placard is displayed on a bicycle during a rally and march over the death of 23-year-old Elijah McClain, Saturday, June 27, 2020, outside the police department in Aurora, Colo. McClain died in late August 2019, after he was stopped while walking to his apartment by three Aurora Police Department officers.

Then, how the Aurora Police Accountability Task Force is working toward reform and rebuilding trust with the community, and how that compares to national efforts. Plus, author David Heska Wanbli Weiden’s “Winter Counts,” a Colorado Book Award finalist.
