CODE RED Grassroots Press Conference

September 16 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

This Thursday at 11:00 am, join grassroots activists, climate legislators and youth leaders on for an in-person ‘CODE RED’ grassroots press event to send a clear message to the Polis administration: We need you to step up your ambition on climate change!

This month at the Air Quality Control Commission Meeting, the Polis Administration will be assessing our state’s progress towards our emissions reduction targets and environmental justice goals, and presenting our state’s updated 2021 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory. 

Colorado is currently facing a grave air quality and climate crisis. We are not on track to reach its 2025 emissions reduction targets and the Polis administration has permitted 4,332 NEW oil and gas wells since our governor was elected. This is unacceptable. Join us as we mobilize around the AQCC’s monthly meeting to tell the Polis Administration loud and clear: We need you to step up your climate ambition, and stop permitting new oil and gas wells. Make sure to wear red! 

What: CODE RED Grassroots Press Conference

When: 11:00 am, Thursday 9/16

Where: 2596 Zuni Street, Denver, CO 

Who: You, wearing your favorite red t-shirt.
