He’s one of the co-founders of the Parasol Patrol. They are a group of volunteers that tries to separate event attendees from protestors. (credit: CBS) “What we do is we use our rainbow umbrella as a shield to block the signs and the faces of protesters,” explained Eli. “We use our ear protection for our little ones.” They absorb the heckling and name-calling so that kids don’t have to. He says he feels like they are protecting kids from bigotry and hate. “Quite honestly, some of the stuff they yell at these kids is pretty dramatic,” said Eli. Despite what they might hear from protestors, the Parasol Patrol doesn’t start trouble. No matter how tense the situation may get. “We don’t engage with them at all. I’m not here to yell back,” said Eli.  “I’m not going to change their mind. They’re not going to change my mind.” (credit: CBS) Eli says...

    DENVER (CBS4)– Some communities are coming together to help families who may be struggling. The Mile High United Way organized its first-ever “Women United Village Event” over the weekend. (credit: CBS) More than 100 families benefited from the effort and collected essential baby supplies like diapers, clothes, car seats and more. There were also organizations offering resources including Denver Health and the YMCA.

We hear about women who reuse diapers. It’s the number one thing that they choose, sometimes between rent and diapers for their baby. To be able to have diapers, wipes, all of those things, it helps relieve a little bit of stress for a family,” said Chief Development Officer Chelsea Carver. (credit: CBS) Organizers say they hope events like this help mothers put their families first and keep up with the other priorities in their lives.

On Saturday, CAPU, the city of Denver and the University of Colorado Denver, are gathering for the...
