Demonstrators carry placards as they walk down Sable Boulevard during a rally and march over the death of 23-year-old Elijah McClain, Saturday, June 27, 2020, in Aurora, Colo. McClain died in late August 2019 after he was stopped while walking to his apartment by three Aurora Police Department officers.

Elijah McClain died a year ago after an encounter with Aurora police. The case is a rallying point for reform. Then, two Colorado delegates to the Republican National Convention. Plus, memories of Lincoln Hills. Also, Democrats hope to crack a traditional GOP stronghold. And, the artist behind a Colorado Springs mural about indigenous women wins a big prize.
