We are building a movement for a just, sustainable future in Colorado, learning from and supporting each other in our overlapping efforts. We are stronger together and want to bring about the better future we all need.

Our world has enough resources for well-being for all, but our current economic and political systems put profit over people, depriving people of the basics needed to live and destroying our common home, neglecting to provide clean air and water or equitable access to jobs, leisure, health care or a world where we and all our relations can live and thrive.
We share an urgent need for a rapid shift on climate and justice in all its forms -- social, economic, and environmental -- to build an economy in service to life. A better world is possible. There are many alternatives to systems that rationalize violence, that dominate, extract and dehumanize, and threaten life, balance, harmony, and stability. We are deeply interrelated. Come join us as we bring together our movements, thinking, and best efforts.

Together We Are Stronger! At this conference we are:
• Identifying action/next steps in each area, to get to the next system we need
• Building community and interconnections
• Educating for the big picture and (radical) system change
• Seeing and developing policies, plans, strength and web of support

This conference is just the start! Follow up fusion/intersectional conferences and ones centered in different topic areas are already underway for the next year, all focused on next steps we can take to bring about the change we need and that folks are making already, including:
• Later this year (post-election) on the economic and political transition
• Next spring, on green building technologies, financing strategies, and building support
• Next “all movement” fusion/intersectional conference, with more on justice, food systems, soil, and cultural restoration, food and permaculture
