Protecting our communities’ health and safety from fracking
Colorado Rising is powering the grassroots effort to pass a statewide ballot initiative establishing common sense protections for our communities from the dangers of oil & gas development and fracking.
“As a local elected official, I have both a duty and a responsibility to do everything in my power to protect the health, safety and welfare of my constituents – which is why I am supporting the Colorado Rising for Health & Safety initiative.”
– Elise Jones, Boulder County Commissioner
Behind the initiative
We’re working toward a statewide statutory ballot initiative to establish common sense buffer zones between fracking and occupied buildings – like homes and schools – and areas of special concern – like playgrounds and drinking water sources.
Colorado Rising is a grassroots group of Coloradans. Want to know more about the initiative?
