June 10, 2017 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

JOIN us on Saturday, June 10, from 2 -4 for a backyard barbecue and support the effort of the neighbors of Globevllle , Swansea and Elyria to stop the expansion of inner city Highway I 70.

Please join the Sierra Club Foundation, Unite North Metro Denver, the Cross Community Coalition and our generous hosts and sponsors listed below for a fundraiser for our ongoing fight against the I-70 Central Expansion. Learn the latest updates about lawsuits and other actions fighting the proposed expansion through the Globeville, Swansea and Elyria neighborhoods.

It’s Not Too Late to Ditch the Ditch!

These communities are in the most heavily polluted zip code in the United States. No other populated area in the country carries as high an environmental risk. Childhood asthma rates are 40% higher and congestive heart disease is 70% greater than in other Denver neighborhoods. The environmental and social injustice will continue unless we continue!
