THE WHITE HOUSE APRIL 24, 1999
Due to the ongoing state of shock and emotion in Denver over the tragedy
at Columbine High School, the rally organizers at
have decided to cancel the "Take Back the White House" rally. Below is the
official statement from those at
We have made the decision to cancel our rally on April 24. The city of
Denver is in a state of shock and we have the horrific knowledge that
will be 15 funerals in this city in the coming days.
This was indeed a difficult decision for us, as most of us believe that
issues which have organized us on a grassroots level are intricately
connected to the events which took place in our city this week. When high
officials are allowed to "get away" with crimes and are cheered for it, we
know that there is a deep crisis of values in this country.
Because this happened so close to home, and the entire city is in mourning
and grief, we feel a responsibility to our community to cancel this
We will continue to support others in cities around the country and
our website to communicate with all of you.
We had about 600 wonderful bumper stickers made for this event. One says
"IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO STOP A RAPIST" and another,
"WE BELIEVE JUANITA".
For a donation of your choosing and a stamped-self addressed envelope, we
will send you one of these bumper stickers. You can send it to:

Thank you so much for your continued support, and we ask that you
remain active in your community. Let's not ignore any of the victims.
I have said before, No party, denomination, or group has a monopoly on
ethics, integrity or truth. We Believe Juanita is a testimony to that.
Never has it been more important to stand united for those things instead
divided against so much else.
Our deepest hopes and prayers for all the victims of injustice and
that is pervading our culture.
In vigilance and in peace,
We Believe Juanita
