350 Denver member Joe Lantz has the answer: Refurbished bikes! Joe combines his love for the environment with his passion for bikes by volunteering at Bikes Together. This Denver non-profit bike shop rescues used bikes and bike parts from the landfill, fixes your bike or teaches you how, and helps kids from low-income families acquire a set of wheels.

There is a global movement of divestment from fossil fuels and investment in green energy occurring called the Go Fossil Free/Divest-Invest movement that has already garnered the commitment of 1,000+ institutions totaling over $8B of investments. PERA should join this movement, not only to be on the “right side of history” environmentally speaking, but also to ensure it fulfills its sole purpose: to maintain its assets in the present and in the future to fund the retirement of its members.

In spite of a pending lawsuit by Boulder County, Crestone Peak Resources is asking the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) for permits to build fracking wells near Erie, on land that abuts the Panama Reservoir and its wildlife habitat. The COGCC is accepting comments on these permit applications, and we have until December 6th to tell them to reject these dangerous proposals. Take action today by contacting the COGCC.
Please join us in calling on Governor-Elect Jared Polis to take meaningful action to protect Colorado communities from fracking and to address climate change through a just and equitable transition to renewable energy.
