This is the first in a series of weekly actions that 350 Boulder County will be sending to members. For Actions that are relevant state-wide, we’ll send to all 350 Colorado members. Each week, we’ll recommend a new specific action, which might be an event, a phone call to make, an email to send, a thought about how to reduce your carbon footprint, or something altogether different. Some may be location-specific, like Monday’s March, in which case we’ll include a way for you to act virtually. We hope you’ll join us in taking these actions. Please feel free to send us recommendations, and if you’re local group would like to get involved, please let us know. We’re stronger together!
For those who can make it Downtown in Denver on Monday February 20, meet on the west steps of the Capitol to march and show solidarity with the six youth who brought the fracking and climate lawsuit against the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission! We will march, sing, and rally together to show the Colorado Court of Appeals the immense support this case has. The youth argue the Commission has a statutory and constitutional obligation to prioritize protection of public health and the environment over oil and gas development. On the Following day, February 21st, the youth have their hearing and also need your help to flood the court room then! RSVP for the March on Facebook!
If you can’t make it to Denver, please learn more about this important and historic legal case in the fight to keep fossil fuels in the ground and share Guardian’s Media Tool Kit far and wide to raise awareness among your friends. You can also post the graphic above on social media.
