Join us in building the movement to solve the climate crisis through elevating climate justice, working to keep fossil fuels in the ground, advancing fossil fuel divestment efforts and promoting local solutions.
Join one of our committees and ongoing campaigns.
Climate Legislation and Action Committee – Educate and push elected officials to take strong positions on climate change, track policy efforts, pressure legislators for more bold climate action, organize Lobby Days at the Capitol and continue the momentum calling for a Green New Deal both locally and nationally. (Please note – this committee was formerly focused on Green New Deal, but is now focusing more broadly on climate-related legislation while also still promoting the Green New Deal locally and federally).

Fracking Committees – Continue our work to stop hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling in Colorado. This committee works to protect communities from fracking and collaborates closely with partner groups and impacted communities. If you are interested in addressing fracking on public lands, you can also join the Fracking on Public Lands Committee. Sign up here.
Defunding Climate Disaster/Divest-Invest Committee – Defund the climate crisis by promoting divestment from fossil fuels, including a Fossil Free PERA (Public Employees Retirement Association) campaign and a Public Banking subcommittee working to advance public banking in Colorado. This group also focuses on defunding big banks who are financing extreme fossil fuel projects. Sign up here.

- Youth Action Committee – Are you a youth 24 or younger? Then you are in luck! Join the youth action committee or YAC. We will meet on the third Monday of every month at 7:00 PM to plan, create, or execute ideas. We will organize webinars, strikes, direct actions etc. Join us to discuss what needs to happen for the climate crisis in Colorado and what we can do about it. Whether that’s phone banking, making a petition or planning an event. This committee will do it with youth power and energy! Sign up here.
Join a Local 350 Colorado Team.
350 Colorado has local teams across the state working on a number of local issues. Each month, groups meet around the state to host events and presentations and plan for local actions. It’s a great way to meet people working to solve climate change in your community and stay involved. Join a local 350 Colorado team near you. And – if there isn’t a team in your area, consider starting one! Contact our Volunteer Coordinator Amy here to learn more.
However you choose to stay engaged, we look forward to our continued work together this year!
