CARD Petition and Donation Drive: We Need Your Help Print

“Someone put a stop to this before it is too late!” wrote Betty Primer of Wellington in a recent letter to the editor of the Fort Collins Coloradoan (Stop Uranium Mine). That someone can be you but you need to act. Unless you express your concerns to our county commissioners and local and state lawmakers and encourage them to change outdated mining laws and a permitting process that does not afford sufficient protection to our precious ground water then we will have a uranium mine in northern Colorado.

If you want to put a stop to uranium mining in northern Colorado you have to make sure your voice is heard by our lawmakers. Here is what you can do:

  • Sign Our Petition. We have over 8,500 signatures to-date but that is not enough when you consider the large population of northern Colorado and the general lack of support for uranium mining. To sign our petition, click here.
  • Organize petition drives. We need volunteers to solicit petition signatures in all northern Colorado communities. A lot of people still don’t know about the uranium mine or don't understand its potential dire consequences for our water, environment, health and way of life in northern Colorado. Almost everyone you talk to will sign the petition. If you want to organize or participate in a petition drive, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .
  • Express your concerns directly to local and state lawmakers. We provide you contact information, including phone numbers and email addresses, for the Weld County and Larimer County commissioners, your state senators and representatives, and the governor. Please email, write, or phone them today.
  • Donate money. As a volunteer organization, we depend on your financial donations to support the increasingly large effort to stop uranium mining in northern Colorado. To donate money and to see how your money is used, click here.
