Water Crisis Convenes Community Meeting

Denver, CO -Colorado People’s Alliance (COPA) member’s canvassed in Montbello and Green Valley Ranch in 2016 and discovered troubling information from the majority of community members–our community does not have access to safe drinking water, and it is making us sick.

Colorado People’s Alliance is convening a Water Justice Community Meeting, for Montbello and Commerce City residents, on Wednesday, May 31st from 6-7:30pm at Montbello Recreation Center to continue to hear from our neighbors around issues regarding the safety of their water and infrastructure, and to ensure our voices are heard in the development of our communities.

We must all have access to safe drinking water, and confidence in those responsible for ensuring the safety and health of our communities. Historically communities of color have been the most impacted by a lack of investment in city infrastructure. As a state, and nation, we must focus investing in repairing and replacing deteriorating infrastructure.

COPA is launching a Water Justice Campaign in Montbello and Commerce City, beginning with tonight’s meeting, to ensure all communities have access to safe drinking water.

Colorado People’s Alliance (COPA) is a racial justice, member-driven organization dedicated to advancing and winning progressive social change locally, statewide and nationally. COPA builds power to improve the lives of all Coloradans through leadership development, organizing and alliance building.
