Fight Fracking in Boulder County

WE NEED YOU!

Join me in fighting fracking on Boulder County. On Monday, January 29 there are two important opportunities to speak out against fracking at the state Capitol and a hearing two blocks from the capitol! No experience necessary. Just tell your story in the three minutes.

 

Afternoon: PROTECT Act – SB18-048 Local Government Authority Oil & Gas Facilities (sponsored by Sen. Matt Jones, Rep. Mike Foote). The Protect Act empowers cities and counties to plan zone, or reject oil and gas operations, just like they do for any other industrial activity. Come to support this bill and show other state senators and representatives why they need to support this bill too!

WHEN: 1:30pm
LOCATION: State Capitol, Room SCR 357
200 E Colfax Ave, Denver, CO

Morning: Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) hearing. Drop in, speak three meetings on behalf of our public health, safety, and climate. We want the COGCC to see the impacts of fracking, up close and personal.

WHEN: 9-12:00 pm
LOCATION: Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC)
The Chancery Building
1120 Lincoln Street, Suite 801 Denver, CO
Parking in The Chancery Building.

BACKGROUND

Two companies are proposing to drill and frack oil and gas wells in Boulder County between and in Longmont, Erie, and Lafayette.  The Colorado Oil and Gas Commission (COGCC) must approve these wells. If we don’t show up and tell them how we feel about oil and gas wells being drilled and fracked in Boulder County near homes and on open space, who will?
