Denver church plans to stand in solidarity with teachers during strike
DENVER -- A local church describes its decision to support the Denver Public Schools teacher strike as something larger than the community and a tribute to history. "Our founder walked out of a white Methodist church because they were mistreated, so it was the beginning of the protest movement, and so this is fitting today that we support teachers," said Shorter Community African Methodist Episcopal Church Pastor Timothy Tyler.
