Lunch hour rally on Thursday Aug. 2 features speakers discussing industry benefits to Colorado and society as a whole

The international ‘keep it in the ground’ environmental movement may be trying to stop the extraction and use of oil and gas through rallies, marches, demonstrations, ballot initiatives and social media campaigns, but Thursday Aug. 2, the Colorado oil and gas industry is answering with a rally of its own.

Organized by energy industry volunteers, the “Energy Proud” rally is slated for the west steps of the Colorado State Capitol this Thursday, August 2, from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm. Organizers say they expect the rally to draw more than 2,000 members of Colorado’s oil and gas industry and other supporters.
