Share Your 1970 Story

No matter what your perspective Woodstock West: Build Not Burn wants to hear your first-person account of this tumultous spring of 1970. For those in Denver, did you simply ignore the shantytown built off Evans Avenue and continue on to class? Were you a member of Strike Central? Did you live at the Kappa Sig house and help set up the Red Cross Station? Did you and your band perform on the Woodstock West music stage? Do you remember driving by the campus wondering what those kids were up to? Were you a member of the Denver police or the Colorado National Guard in 1970? Your story is important, and we want to hear it.

If you lived through the protests of May 1970 somewhere outside of Denver we want to hear from you too. Were you from a community where most people supported the president? Did you take part in the massive demonstrations in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco? Were you conflicted about the war because you had a relative serving in Vietnam? All stories are valued here.
