The University of Colorado Boulder Center for Humanities & the Arts will co-host an event in April geared toward reflection and community resiliency following the one-year anniversary of the mass shooting in south Boulder.

The event will begin with opening remarks from CU Boulder Chancellor Phil DiStefano. Divisional Dean for Arts & Humanities John-Michael Rivera will moderate the event, according to a news release from CU Boulder. Rivera has completed research on gun violence.
The panel will feature Jen Douglas, a CU Boulder undergraduate student; Jessica Lawson, CU Boulder instructor and alumna; and Ross Taylor, assistant professor of journalism, the release said. The panelists will speak about their art, their process to create their art and how it has helped each of them reflect on the March 22, 2021 shooting at the Table Mesa King Soopers, the release said.
To mark the one-year anniversary on Tuesday, the Boulder Police Department held a line of duty death commemoration outside its building in remembrance of Officer Eric Talley, who was killed in the shooting.
A Day of Remembrance event was also held Tuesday evening at the Glen Huntington Bandshell in downtown Boulder. The event included remarks from past and present city, state and federal officials as well as local faith leaders.
The man accused of shooting and killing 10 people at King Soopers remains incompetent to proceed to trial, but doctors believe there is a chance he could be restored “within the reasonable future.”
In addition to Talley, Denny Stong, 20; Neven Stanisic, 23; Rikki Olds, 25; Tralona Bartkowiak, 49;Teri Leiker, 51;Suzanne Fountain, 59; Kevin Mahoney, 61;Lynn Murray, 62; and Jody Waters, 65, were killed in the shooting.
