Week of Escalated Actions Sept. 21-29
Our house is on fire and it’s time we acted like it.
Colorado’s Climate Strike will kick-off a week of mass, escalated actions to demand climate action at scale with the crisis: no new fossil fuels leasing or development, just and equitable climate solutions, and accountability for fossil fuel companies responsible for the climate crisis.

Join us to keep the pressure on the COGCC and remind commissioners and the oil and gas industry that it is time to enact a clear transition plan away from fossil fuels in our state and to address climate change now.
Please join in offering public comment at the hearing, keeping the pressure on and ensuring that our SB19-181 is not only upheld, but also that oil and gas permitting is paused during the new rulemaking process. Click here to RSVP
Sept. 26th – Suncor Action – Demand Clean Air
The Suncor Energy oil refinery, in Commerce City just North of Denver, continues poisoning communities and contributing significantly to the climate crisis. Suncor has repeatedly violated its air pollution permits, releasing hundreds of tons of dangerous, smog-forming chemicals each year, leading to numerous health problems for the surrounding community.
Join us at 5 p.m. on September 26th as we demand Colorado adopt a Green New Deal and close the Suncor refinery, converting to 100% renewable energy and a just transition of Suncor’s workers and the communities most affected by its pollution. Click here to RSVP!
