Stop Fracking – Take Action Now!

Good govs dont frack their peopleFracking is dirty, dangerous, and incompatible with healthy communities or a safe climate.

In 2019, Colorado passed SB19-181, a landmark law that required for the first time that Colorado oil and gas policy prioritize the protection of public health and safety over oil and gas extraction. 

What we have seen since that law has passed has been incredibly disappointing. Only TWO oil and gas drilling plans have been denied since that law was passed. In contrast, the State has approved over 5,000 permits in the last 5 years.  

It is time to phase out permitting and plan for a just transition beyond fossil fuels! Join the movement for a 2024 statewide ballot initiative to phase out fracking permits by 2030! Pledge to Sign the ballot initiative, and then share it with friends and family.
