Breathe Free Colorado

Governor Jared Polis today announced executive order D 2020 138 requiring all individuals over 10 years old in Colorado to wear a non-medical face covering or mask when indoors, and it requires business owners to enforce the order by denying services to people that do not wear a mask.

The governor without approval of the state legislature has mandated that citizens purchase masks in violation of the U.S. Constitution. Even worse, Polis is putting business owners at risk of losing their business or liquor license if they don't enforce the mandate for him.  

Non-medical masks have not been proven to be effective at reducing the spread of COVID-19 nor are they approved or tested to meet any FDA, OSHA, or CCR regulations. There are multiple peer reviewed studies indicating the ineffectiveness of homemade cloth masks and other studies claiming that they could endanger wearers. 

Donna Walter and Mark Milliman are the initial plaintiffs on the lawsuit. More may be added later. They are both candidates for the Colorado State Assembly in House Districts 52 and 11, respectively. We seek to raise funds to cover legal expenses to fight this unconstitutional and ineffective order by Governor Polis. All funds will be used to cover expenses incurred to file a federal lawsuit against the governor and several health departments such as Boulder and Larimer counties. Only our legal counsel will have access to the funds to avoid any potential conflicts with our campaigns. We are a growing group of business owners, lawyers, politicians, and activists fighting for our rights and common sense science-based approaches to combating COVID-19. The effort to resist these unlawful orders began weeks before the mandate became effective. We have already put immense time and effort into preparing an effective and winning strategy.

If you sponsor us, it will assist us to oppose the never-ending rule of Colorado by Governor Jared Polis. We will post all updates on this site and welcome any additional plaintiffs with financial damages that want to participate in this action.
