350 Colorado is a group of thousands of volunteers, supported by a small but powerful staff. We started organizing in 2009 and have grown to be the largest Colorado-based grassroots network focused on taking action to stop climate change. We have over nine volunteer lead teams across the state and over a dozen committees powering strategic, successful campaigns.

Bob joined the 350CO Board in 2014 and volunteered to be the Vice President of 350 Colorado – and remained so, for some exciting but challenging times as we figured out who we wanted to be and how to get there.
