I just saw an amazing video, made by New Era Colorado Foundation — a multi-issue organization committed to engaging, educating, and training a new generation of active citizens and young leaders in Colorado.
In 2011, New Era Colorado Foundation successfully brought voters together to reach an historic decision to create a local, greener and more affordable public utility. Xcel Energy (a big power corporation) has lobbied to have a measure put on Boulder’s ballot to reverse that decision. Excel knows that Boulder can inspire other communities to join in creating a new model for providing energy, a real turning point in the fight for climate change.
Watch their incredible message:
and read about their crowdfunding campaign to support this initiative.
I LOVE Boulder, Colorado!
