its time to protect our communities from fracking

Colorado: Vote “YES” on #112 for health and safety over fracking – 11/6/2018

Colorado Rising is powering the grassroots effort to pass a statewide ballot initiative (Proposition #112) establishing common sense protections for our communities from the dangers of oil & gas development and fracking.


On August 6th, we turned in over 172,000 signatures for our “Safer Setbacks from Fracking” initiative to the Secretary of State.  On August 29th, the Secretary of State certified the count of valid signatures and approved our initiative for the state-wide November election! This grassroots effort was led by more than 750 Colorado volunteers from across the state!  Congratulations and thank you to all our signers and supporters!  Be sure to vote YES on Election Day (Tuesday, November 6th)!

Behind the initiative

Colorado Rising is a grassroots group of Coloradans.

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.
