Our Network of Local Affiliates
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.
- Grand Valley Citizens Alliance (Garfield County)
- Ridgway-Ouray Community Council (Ouray County)
- Uncompahgre Valley Association (Montrose County)
- WCC of Mesa County (Mesa County including Grand Junction, Fruita, and Palisade)
While WCC members often work on issues that affect all of western Colorado and beyond – issues like the impacts of oil and gas development, public lands, local 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.
Plugging into a Regional Network
Western Colorado Congress is a member organization of the Western Organization of Resource Councils (WORC), a regional network of seven grassroots community organizations that include 10,000 members and 38 local affiliates. WORC helps its member groups succeed by providing training to their members and staff, and coordinating issue work that crosses state boundaries.
