Urgent! Colorado has thousands of active fracked wells and many of them are unsupervised and already polluting the surrounding areas and groundwater.  Earth Guardians is taking action in the streets of Denver at the state Capitol on Feb 20 (Presidents Day) to support 6 youth plaintiffs suing the Colorado Gas & Oil Commission the following day. Other states and countries have been successful in changing policy and we are working to do the same!  We need support to help restore what's left of the environment here in Colorado and in order to do that we need to create personal and collective responsibility. Join us to get involved and have this important discussion. Bring your questions, stories, solutions and take home the next steps.  Session leaders: Daniel Jubelier of Our Children's Trust, Russell Mendell of Frack Free Colorado, and Aidan Ferris and Robin Eden of Earth Guardians.
