Change St*pleton to Mosley Park!

In the spirit of social justice movements and the push for equity in this country, the process of changing neighborhood names, removing statues of oppression and abolishing the Confederate Flag at public sporting events, are all important first steps towards reconciliation.
The Stapleton Neighborhood in Denver, Colorado is currently in the conversation for such a name change.
The Mosley name is respected in both Denver and Aurora for the efforts made to bring equality for all residents. John and Edna dedicated themselves to public service and their efforts improved the lives of all those who call Denver and Aurora home.
It’s well known that John W. Mosley was a Tuskegee Airman, serving his country in WWII and contributing to the allies victory, but he also assisted in drafting the initial policies relating to the integration of the new U.S. Air Force as ordered by President Harry S. Truman. His honorable service is only amplified by his pursuit of justice in the skies and below. Edna was the first African American elected to the Aurora City Council and was one of the founders of CoBiz Bank. Stapleton, as it once was an airport, couldn't be more deserving of the Mosley name.
We applaud the steps taken by the Stapleton Master Community Association and Stapleton United Neighbors and are recommending the name Mosley Park for the change. This can only happen with YOUR support.
Please sign this petition to show support for our cause. Together, we can give the neighborhood a name it can stand for!
