Help Cora Galpern get elected as MCA District 2 Delegate

by Team Cora - District 2: 29th Ave Town Center & Original

We're supporting: Vote for A Change by Rename St*pleton For All

Candidate(s) : Cora Galpern


Campaign has ended.


I have lived in Stapleton for 15 years and am currently a senior at George Washington High School. I want to make a difference before I go off to college and I believe the best way for me to do that is to work towards making my community a better place. I believe the first and best way to positively change the Stapleton community is changing its name. I believe the name is a bad representation of our community and perpetuates the harms of racism and white supremacy. I believe serving the community means serving all of its members and making it the most inclusive space it can be. As someone who has grown up in this neighborhood, I offer a unique perspective and can be a voice for the youth of the community.


Representing a wide range of experience and reasons for running, this slate of eight candidates favor removing from the development, the name that honors former Denver Mayor Benjamin F. Stapleton, a Ku Klux Klan member supported by the hate group in the 1920s. District Delegates meet monthly to advise the MCA Board, to elect new MCA Board members, and to approve or veto the budget. The MCA Board has legal authority to change the community name. Board elections will occur later this year.

These candidates include a high school honor student, a medical researcher, community organizer, lawyer, creative director for a small business, and more. Rename St*pleton for All will be campaigning full force for these candidates because we share the values of a welcoming, inclusive community, and these candidates represent a diversity of age, gender, race and ethnicity.  We are getting back to the book.

Rename St*pleton for All will be conducting a people-to-people, door-to-door, campaign to educate the community about MCA election processes and to prepare them to vote by proxy or in person at the MCA Annual meeting, November 14th at 6:30 pm at The Cube, 8371 Northfield Blvd (E. 49th Ave.).
