Boulder County Community Rights Forum (8/23/2018 7pm-9 pm)

  • Church of the Brethren 7891 Hygiene Rd Longmont, CO 80503-9156 (map)

Why can't people protect themselves from--
Fracking?
Gravel mines?
Prairie dog destruction?
Pipelines?
Ecosystem and endangered species destruction?
For-profit water withdrawals? 

What kind of movement will it take to save the environment and protect ourselves, our families, and our communities? 

Join us at the Historic Church of the Brethren and learn about efforts to build the community rights movement, and why this movement is imperative NOW, not only to preserve our communities but the whole planet. 

You'll hear from local organizers with--
Save Our Saint Vrain Valley
Best Democracy
Prairie Protection Colorado
Boulder Rights of Nature
Tindakan
East Boulder County United and the Longmont Protectors

You'll also hear from two current candidates for local and state office who both emerged from the community rights movement in Boulder County: Cliff Willmeng for Boulder County Commissioner (at large), and Theresa Stets for State House District 12

We'll wrap up with a discussion on Home Rule for Boulder County, and what such a campaign could achieve.
