The event took place at the Levitt Pavilion in Denver, C.O on Oct. 13.

Using their platform to make a difference, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats hosted a rally and concert in partnership with Rateliff's foundation, The Marigold Project, bringing thousands of people together for his Not One More event in Denver, Colorado on Saturday (Oct. 13). 

Partnering with a local nonprofit community, the event was focused on hearing directly from local students and national advocates while engaging in thoughtful conversations and workshops on how to end gun violence. 

The rally featured powerful statements like 11-year-old student Olivia Caudill who forcefully shared, “Being able to use my voice and share my experience of what it means to grow up constantly worrying about a shooter coming to my school is all I can do. I cannot vote. We need grown-ups to actually listen to what we’re saying, and to support us like Nathaniel Rateliff is. We’re counting on adults to protect us.” 

On his initiative and using his platform to start much-needed conversations, Rateliff said “I really want to see some changes so people won't be losing their lives to guns. We are here to help lift up voices on this issue." 

Rateliff & The Night Sweats were joined on stage by Kam Franklin of The Suffers, local band Los Mocochetes and the Denver Children’s Choir.
