This month we are honoring Janis Hallowell as our Climate Hero of the Month! Janis has been involved with 350 Colorado over the past four years in a variety of capacities, and is a critically acclaimed novelist, potter, farmer and climate advocate.
She has spent 2021 advocating for the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) to plug oil and gas wells
using a new method she has helped to coin, called ‘Carbon Plugging’.
To our 350 Colorado members, partners, staff, board members, and beyond,
Over the last decade of organizing together on climate action, our movement has grown in tremendous ways and accomplished many great things. We are so grateful to work with so many of you across so many coalitions and community spaces.
