Signature Gathering Workshop-Protect CO from fracking! (April 17/21/24 Denver CO)

  • 1801 North Williams Street Suite 400 Denver, CO (map)

We can't wait any longer as fracking wells continue to move into cities across the state-- from Erie to Durango.

Food & Water Watch is a part of CO Rising, a state-wide coalition of grassroots volunteers and local groups who are ready to protect Colorado communities from fracking. 

This summer, we have the opportunity to get an important initiative on the November ballot. It would keep fracking wells a minimum of 2,500 ft away from homes, schools, hospitals, and drinking water sources- to protect our air, water, and health from the fracking industry!

We just have a few months to collect 146,000 signatures on our petitions. Whether you gather signatures from friends and family or attend your local farmers market or event, every single signature counts.

Please join us for a short training and pick up your petitions this April!
