A growing body of public health research shows that living too close to fracking operations, especially less than 2,500 feet, is a serious risk to health and safety.
Proposition 112 establishes sensible 2,500 foot buffer zones between new oil and gas development and occupied buildings like homes and schools, as well as water sources, playgrounds and other vulnerable areas.
Pledge to support Proposition 112
Oil & gas is one of the most powerful industries in the world.
They hired people to harass our volunteers and paid our signature gathering firms to stop working with us.
And now they’re trying to further protect their power by spreading misinformation. Did you know that oil and gas jobs make up less than 1% of total jobs in Colorado? Whether its bribes or covert funding of favorable studies, oil & gas will do anything to stop Proposition 112.
The oil and gas industry is spending $30 million to try to defeat Proposition 112 – our citizen-led, all-volunteer grassroots effort needs your help.
100% of donated funds go towards getting out the vote, including door knocking, text and phone banking, digital media, and TV and radio advertising. Help us make history with a measure protecting communities from one of the most powerful industries in the world.
Right now we have an opportunity to take action where there’s been inaction for far too long.
We need dedicated volunteers to join us in standing up for local communities – sign up to knock doors, make calls, and help out at local events. Make friends, have fun, and be part of something bigger – it’s time for us to come together and show what community means.
Citizens who live near energy infrastructure often feel disempowered, study says.

Join us as we tune into Bill McKibben’s livestream to Colorado Rising and make phone calls to Colorado voters. We’ll have good company, a thorough training, and a fun time getting the word out about Proposition 112.
