Colorado Rising is powering a grassroots movement to protect our health, safety, quality of life and the future of our climate from the harms and impacts of oil and gas operations. We use public education and outreach, digital and media strategies, public policy, and robust litigation efforts to challenge the power of the oil and gas industry and to keep heavy-industrial fracking operations out of our neighborhoods.

Colorado Rising was started by local people and grassroots groups across the state who are dedicated to protecting our communities from the hazards of oil and gas development and fracking to public health and safety.

Join us in protecting the health and safety of all Coloradans

Fracking is harming much of what we all love about living in Colorado and why so many people like to visit – the fresh air, clean water, beautiful landscapes and a safe place to raise our families.
