On a sunny March day, the Women of Welton Street gathered for a picture. Striking in their bright clothes — sharp reds, sunny yellows, brilliant greens and hot pinks — the 20 women stood with confidence. Hands on their hips. Shoulders squared. Big smiles. The women, all professionals in Denver’s Five Points neighborhood, came to make a statement: We are here for each other and we are here to stay.
