Coalition for a Clean Colorado

March 8, 2012

Colorado, gas well drilling

Coalition for a Clean Colorado – aka C3 – is a brand new organization of organizations in Colorado. Here is their first email blast:

The first Hickenlooper Fracking Task Force meeting is Friday, March 9, 2012, 9:00 a.m. to noon on Sherman Ave, in Denver. We are waiting to find out if, (a) C3 will be granted representation on the task force; and (b) the public can attend the meeting. We hope those of you on the Front Range can attend the meeting. Details to follow, but we wanted to give everyone a heads up so you can plan accordingly. Please alert and share this email with your respective networks. Click here for more info about the Task Force.

Our fledgling grassroots, Coalition for a Clean Colorado is coming together! Quite unexpectedly, we’re already getting a lot of media calls. We can speak to state-wide issues but we think you should be the one representing your communities. If you’d like C3 to refer journalists to key people in your group, please forward the following information as soon as possible (especially if you expect state/national media coverage in the near future).

1) Organization name, website link
2) Area (town(s)/county) and summary of the key challenges and issues you are dealing with
3) Key media contact names (we recommend 2-3 people who are easy to reach and versed in the fine art of talking to the media)
4) Cell phone or most direct and reliable way to reach you
5) Email address

Send your info to Ceal Smith: ceal@theriver.com

We’ll compile a list to refer reporters to according to the area and subject being reported on.

C3 Representation
We’re drafting our mission/statement of purpose and will have that out in the next week or two. For now, please note that it’s best for community groups not to represent C3 and to refer questions about the Coalition back to us.

Open Letter
Thanks to all of you who signed the Open Letter to the Governor. We’ve had some new sign-ons and will be working on a follow-up, probably to the Fracking Task Force created by the Governor’s Executive Order.

Website coming soon! For now here’s the Coalition for Colorado Facebook page
