Protecting Boulder County

East Boulder County United is a frontline, community-driven organization created in response to the threat of oil and gas drilling in Boulder County.

 We are the grassroots volunteers that have fought the fracking industry since 2012, and are now headed into the most serious point of those efforts in over five years. Boulder County is as risk for over 2000 oil and gas wells and we would like your help to stop the drilling and create a new model of resistance for front line communities. Hundreds of drilling permits are now submitted. 

Your donation will assist with the rapidly growing effort to protect the land and air, and create the necessary legal changes to end corporate dominace over communities, people and the natural environment. This effort is expansive and needs assistance for:

* Outreach and educational materials
* Legal defense of community members
* Space rental for community events and civil disobedience trainings
* Public visibility through art, banners, and other equipment
* Travel and operation expenses for bringing in protectors and national grassroots fighters
* To hire a full time organizer to help us coordinate these efforts 

East Boulder County United is working to build a new model of community protection through non violent direct action, legal change, education and resistance. Like so many communities across the country, we realize that the fight for the environment is a fight against corproate power over people, communites, and nature. 

We need your help to hold the line against fracking and begin the process of legal change necessary to protect the democratic rights inseparable to the preservation of the global climate.
