Today and in coming weeks, multiple events commemorate the mass shooting on March 22, 2021

Today is the one-year anniversary of the mass shooting in Boulder. Events are scheduled today and in the coming weeks to help people observe and reflect on the event.

Today, the city of Boulder will hold a number of commemorations—all open to the public. These include:

  • A patrol car will be parked in front of the Boulder Police Department (1805 33rd St.) for individuals to leave their condolences if they so choose through the evening of March 22. Any items left in remembrance will be given to the family of Officer Eric Talley and/or saved at the department.
  • A moment of silence wherever you are at in Boulder at 2:30 p.m. on March 22.
  • Communitywide Day of Remembrance gathering at the Glen Huntington Bandshell from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on March 22.

At 2:30 p.m. on March 31, the University of Colorado Boulder will dedicate a tree on Farrand Field in memory of those lost.

Also appearing now through April 10, the Museum of Boulder is featuring an exhibit titled “Boulder Strong: Still Strong, Remembering March 2021.”

And on April 10, CU Boulder will host a panel discussion titled “One Year Later: Reflections and Resiliency after the Boulder Shooting” at 6:30 p.m. at Chautauqua Community House. There is no charge for tickets, but registration is required.

CU Boulder Chancellor Philip P. Distefano will make opening remarks. John-Michael Rivera, associate dean for arts and humanities in the College of Arts and Sciences, will moderate a panel discussion. Rivera’s research focuses on gun violence.

The event will include two CU Boulder faculty members and a student whose work in remembrance of the shooting was recognized by the Center for Humanities & the Arts. Their work can be seen at this website.
