We need your help. We just launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to fight back against Xcel Energy’s misleading ballot initiative.
This fight is a rare opportunity to create a turning point for the climate movement, and we need your help to build a grassroots campaign to seize it.
Xcel Energy has helped place a measure on Boulder’s ballot to reverse voters’ historic decision from 2011, when we helped pass measures to allow the city to create a greener, more affordable local electric utility. They know that Boulder has the power to inspire other communities to follow suit, so we expect that they’re to spend whatever it takes to win.
We have to out-organize Xcel, because the climate movement does not have time for another setback. Watch the story of our local power campaign and give to scale it to the size we need to win.
Boulder could be a replicable model for communities across the country, who will start to wonder what they could do if they stopped footing the bill for their utility’s profit margins.
Xcel Energy is prepared to go all in on this fight–but we have a grassroots army of committed volunteers who are ready to register and turn out voters to regain control over our energy future.
This is where you come in. We need you to give to grow our grassroots campaign so that we can register, educate, and turn out more voters–and make history in Colorado, and within the climate movement.
One more, very important thing: can you forward this email to 10 people? This is a grassroots campaign and we need your help getting the word out.
Opportunities to create a landmark model for our country do not come along often. We hope you’ll join us, because we need to keep our democracy and our planet out of the hands of the highest bidder.
Thank you for your support,
Steve, Carrie, Becca, Molly, Nina, Alexis, and Lizzy
