OUR MISSION

Keep Colorado Green is a political non-profit founded and run by America’s youth, with the goal of putting Colorado on the national and international stage of stopping climate change. Our passion for the environment is based in the simple belief that our peers and our children have a right to live on a healthy earth.

By supporting our cause, you are directly supporting efforts to propose and implement pro-environmental policies throughout the state of Colorado, and helping to literally save the earth. It is our hope, and our firm belief, that this organization will usher in a new era of local progress and awaken a generation of passionate, righteous young people.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

OUR CAUSES

Voter Registration

In order to save our planet, we must vote for politicians and policies which do so. One of Keep Colorado Green’s primary missions is to engage Colorado youth in local, state, and national politics, so that we can join together in the fight for our future. We are planning drives at 8 universities across the state, with the potential to register tens of thousands of young people. Please donate your time, money, or special skills to help insure that our generation has a voice.

Divestment

Keep Colorado Green stands in firm support of divesting from fossil fuels at every level. Divestment is the practice of selling stocks and holdings in fossil fuel companies, in the hopes of stigmatizing them and forcing a change in their behavior. This spring, KCG helped send students to a sit-in on CU Boulder’s campus, which sought to pressure its administration into divesting. Please support us in this fight by divesting your personal funds, and/or signing up to help organize more actions in favor of divestment.

Sustainability

Our organization has always supported efforts to make all schools, businesses, and communities more sustainable. We are currently working with the Denver Green Roof Initiative to mandate sustainable gardens atop Denver high-rises, and with CU Boulder’s Todd Conklin, Jr. to make CU Boulder one of the greenest campuses in Colorado. Sign up to stay informed on our actions and campaigns for sustainability.

Politician Grading

If voters are to make educated, responsible choices in elections, they must be aware of where their local leaders stand on environmental issues. KCG is seeking to grade every politician in Colorado according to his or her record, stance, and base of support. Please help us by donating to our general fund, or signing up to research Coloradan politicians.
