August Campaign Events - Join Us!
MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR AUGUST 8 AND AUGUST 23 TOPIC FORUMS
What is democratic socialism and what does it mean for Boulder County? In conjunction with Cliff Willmeng and Willmeng for Grassroots Power, Boulder County DSA is co-hosting a What is Socialism forum. Selected speakers will give their theoretical and practical definitions of socialism before shifting to discussing both pre-planned topics and questions from community members.
If you think that the DSA platform interests you, but are unsure of whether you might be a socialist, come to the East Simpson coffee shop and learn about local leftist politics!
Why can't people protect themselves from-- Fracking? Gravel mines? Prairie dog destruction? Pipelines? Ecosystem and endangered species destruction? For-profit water withdrawals?
What kind of movement will it take to save the environment and protect ourselves, our families, and our communities?
Join us at the Historic Church of the Brethren and learn about efforts to build the community rights movement, and why this movement is imperative NOW, not only to preserve our communities but the whole planet.
You'll hear from local organizers with-- Save Our Saint Vrain Valley Best Democracy Prairie Protection Colorado Boulder Rights of Nature Tindakan East Boulder County United and the Longmont Protectors
You'll also hear from two current candidates for local and state office who both emerged from the community rights movement in Boulder County: Cliff Willmeng for Boulder County Commissioner (at large), and Theresa Stets for State House District 12
We'll wrap up with a discussion on Home Rule for Boulder County, and what such a campaign could achieve..
