EBCU has been organizing on the basis of community rights for the past 5 years in Lafayette and Boulder County. This movement works to change the design of our state government, which guarantees the rights of corporations at the expense of the rights of citizens/communities. Erie has been on the front lines of fracking for several years and the impact will only worsen as the Boulder County side of Erie is opened for drilling as is planned for 2018-2019.
This is an informational meeting to engage with Erie citizens and gauge interest in the community rights approach. EBCU welcomes the active participation of Erie citizens to join us in the Boulder County fight to ban fracking and also offers a playbook/support to citizens outside of the Boulder County border in developing their own community rights group to make specific demands to the Erie BoT and Weld county officials.
