An Alliance for Community Action on the Western Slope

What We're Working On

Western Colorado Congress is a grassroots, democratic organization dedicated to challenging injustice by organizing people to increase their power over decisions that affect their lives. WCC’s community groups and members work together to create healthy, sustainable communities, social and economic justice, environmental stewardship and a truly democratic society. Learn more about our organization here.

Where We Work

Four local affiliates are the “roots” in Western Colorado Congress’ grassroots efforts. It’s here that you can work with your neighbors to improve your local community, and tap into WCC’s training and support resources – all while building our collective power.

While WCC members often work on issues that affect all of western Colorado and beyond – issues like the impacts of oil and gas developmentpublic landslocal foods and agriculture or social justice – our affiliates can choose their own issues and strategies that are consistent with WCC’s mission.

Like all WCC members, as a member of an affiliate group you are also welcome to participate in any of WCC’s issue committees. Each local group also has a representative on the WCC Board of Directors.
