December COGCC Hearing (Dec 11 Denver CO)

Please join us at the December COGCC hearing to give three minute public comments about fracking in Colorado! We need your help to keep the spotlight on this issue as we head into the new year.

At the last COGCC hearing in October, over 70 Coloradans spoke up against fracking at the COGCC hearing in Denver. The public testimony lasted over four hours, got great media presence and the COGCC to delayed the approval of some controversial fracking permits near Broomfield homes. 

Fracking is making it's way into our communities faster than we could have ever expected, but our efforts are proof that when we stand together, our voice is one to be reckoned with. 

As the tide of public support around fracking continues to turn, we need your support to continue our momentum forward. The more people that we can continue to turn out for these meetings to speak on behalf of our public health, safety and climate, the better chance that we have to push policy that protects us. We want the COGCC to see the impacts of fracking, up close and personal.

Contact outreach@350colorado.org with any questions or if you want to get involved in helping plan this project!

Indigenous People’s Park Day:
A Celebration of Art as a Form of Resistance.

We are rooted in the protection of land, air and water rights for indigenous and
non-indigenous communities alike. We aspire to inspire young individuals to stand up for what they believe in and become leaders of their indigenous communities.

Indigenous Film Series Presents: Awake (Oct 5 Fort Collins CO)

AWAKE, A DREAM FROM STANDING ROCK

“I am not dreaming. I'm awake. I've been woken by the spirit inside. That demanded I opened my eyes and see the world around me. Seeing that my children's future was in peril. See that my life couldn't wait and slumber anymore. See that I was honored to be among those who are awake. To be alive at this point in time is to see the rising of the Oceti Sakowin. To see the gathering of nations and beyond that, the gathering of all races and all faiths.

Will you wake up and dream with us? Will you join our dream. Will you join us?”

- Floris White Bull

In 2016 Standing Rock, North Dakota became one of the most watched places on earth. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe captured world attention through their peaceful resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline, which threatens the drinking water of 18 million people and Indigenous sovereignty. While many may know the details, AWAKE: A DREAM FROM STANDING ROCK captures the story of the Native-led defiance that forever changed how we fight for clean water, our environment and the future of our planet. Directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker Josh Fox (Gasland), Academy Award nominated filmmaker James Spione (Incident in New Baghdad) and Digital Smoke Signals founder Myron Dewey. Written by Floris White Bull, Josh Fox and Myron Dewey. Executive Produced by Academy Award nominated Amy Ziering (The Invisible War), Golden Globe nominated actress Shailene Woodley (Divergent, A Fault in Our Stars) and Lauren Taschen. Advisors Floris White Bull and Douglas Good Feather. Featuring music from Nahko (Nahko and the Medicine People) and Prolific the Rapper.

Colorado Resistance Launch Party! (Boulder) Sept-24 Boulder CO

Colorado Resistance Launch Party! (Boulder) Sept-24 Boulder CO

Colorado Resistance is a grassroots campaign to resist the Trump agenda by electing as many progressives as possible to state and local office. Join us to find out how Boulder can most effectively use its power as a progressive stronghold to channel activist energy into the key races will need to win to take full control of our state in 2018. 

Trump’s destructive policies may originate in Washington, but they’ll be implemented in our communities by state and local officials. The more power local Democrats have, the more power the Resistance has to fight back. With a fully blue state government, Colorado could step up as a national leader in the Resistance. For example, winning the Attorney General’s office would allow us to join states like Hawaii and Washington in challenging the Trump administration’s unconstitutional actions in court.

Given the Trump administration and GOP's continued enabling of a resurgent white supremacist movement, it's more crucial than ever that we organize to keep political power out of their hands. We hope you'll join us for the official launch of this statewide effort!

Beer, wine, and food trucks will be available on-site. Please take a moment to RSVP here — This helps our organizers get an accurate headcount and generally makes their lives much easier: https://actionnetwork.org/events/colorado-resistance-launch-party-boulder

Living Beyond Hope and Fear: Warrior Principle, Climate Action (Sept 15-17 Boulder CO)

Our times call for bravery. 

The second annual climate change symposium, Living Beyond Hope and Fear: Warrior Principle, Climate Action, will support the cultivation of our innate courage as we engage with the ecological and social challenges that arise out of climate change. 

This symposium is designed for the greater community of faith practitioners, citizen activists, climate scientists, academics, artists, householders, elders, students and youth. In short, any and all who care about the future of our changing world are welcome to attend.

Found in all wisdom traditions, the practice of warriorship explores how tools of compassion, wisdom, and bravery can help us navigate the world through the ups and downs of hope and fear. Practicing warriorship allows us to open our hearts, allowing for appreciation of the sacredness of life itself. Grounded in a view of appreciation and confidence in our collective humanity, we can move forward into action that heals and enlivens us to reconnect with ourselves, with others, and with the natural world.

With plenary sessions led by Muslim peace activist Sahar Alsahlani and sustainability leader and Buddhist teacher Marty Janowitz, participants will have opportunities for contemplation, conversation, meditation, and community building. During breakout sessions, we will explore topics related to eco-action: household energy usage, municipal climate action plans, national carbon fee and dividend legislation, youth activism, non-violent direct action in the face of fracking, and climate justice, among others. 

We will be guided through deep appreciation and healing for our sacred earth with the help of Native American friends, as well as an interfaith panel moderated by GreenFaith Executive Director Rev. Fletcher Harper. And, as a special treat, Master Storyteller Odds Bodkin will share stories of the Fall of the Titans and other tales for our times. Kendra Krueger will serve as our group facilitator.

Building on last year’s symposium, Living Beyond Hope and Fear: Social Confidence and Climate Change, this year’s event will provide participants with opportunities to take warrior action beyond the weekend, through engagement with affinity circles that will emerge from symposium breakout sessions. 

Kid's program Saturday from 9am-6pm. Children under 12 attend for free with a registered adult.

Please join us for this weekend of community, conversation, and creativity!

Presented by the Boulder Shambhala Center, the Joanna Macy Center at Naropa University, the Authentic Leadership Center at Naropa University, Citizens' Climate Lobby/Boulder Chapter.

Demand COGCC Prioritize Health & Safety over Fracking!

Demand COGCC Prioritize Health & Safety over Fracking!

It’s been months since the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled in favor of six youth plaintiffs and decided that health and safety of Coloradans must be prioritized when it comes to fracking.

Instead of following the rule of law, the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) is appealing the decision, and proceeding with business as usual despite the extreme hazards that fracking presents, including two deadly oil & gas explosions since the ruling was made. 

At their next public hearing, we'll demand that the COGCC:

- STOP THE APPEAL to the Martinez decision that sets a precedent for protecting health & safety over fracking!
- RESCIND ALL PERMITS that have been issued since the court of appeals decision
- STOP ISSUING ILLEGAL PERMITS that ignore the law as interpreted by the court of appeals

We can not let the COGCC get away with ignoring impacts to our health, safety and well-being! Please join us at the meeting to show unified support for our rights over the o&g industry:

What: COGCC Meeting - Stand up for health & safety!
When: Monday, July 24, 8:30 am
Where: The Chancery Building 1120 Lincoln Street, Suite 801
Denver, CO 80203

We are asking people to testify at the meeting. Please arrive early to pack the room. It’s essential that we make our voices heard that we will not accept the endangerment of our health for corporate profit.

Agenda

Opportunities for Question and Answer will follow each of these sections.

1. We have spoken clearly on the issue of oil and gas development and it is resolved that we do not want drilling in Boulder County under any circumstances. It is a violation of the land, the health of our families, and the well being of our communities and climate.

2. Any attempt to forcefully move fracking into Boulder County is a violation of our fundamental rights.

3. The laws that seek to remove us from protecting the land, the local environment, the climate, and our right to self govern are in every way immoral and illegitimate.

4. We have the right and obligation to protect the environment, our families, and our communities.

5. All government officials and staff are being asked to side with the people in every capacity, refuse to administer the destruction of the land and its climate, and enforce the will of the community to protect ourselves from any intrusive industry that fails to recognize these fundamental rights.

6. In the event that elected leadership fails to join with the people and the environment, we will protect Boulder County ourselves.
