Colorful Colorado! No wonder so many families want to raise their children here – Colorado’s natural beauty is inspiring and outdoor recreation opportunities abound.

It’s simple: Colorado Mountain Mamas want our kids to play and grow up in pollution-free air.

We strive to leave a better, healthier, cleaner world for our kids and their kids. That’s why we advocate on their behalf for our outdoor quality of life. We’re making the air healthier for our kids today while also fighting the climate crisis that threatens their tomorrow.

Our goal has always been:
Make effective local advocacy accessible to every parent, no matter how tight your schedule.

When you put a group of moms together,
we're going to get the job done.

Everyday we get closer to making our vision of clean air and water for generations to come a reality by organizing Mamas across the state and ensuring we are at the table where decisions are being made.

We also have meaningful fun with our kids along the way – things like creating a climate patch for the Colorado Girl Scouts, delivering singing telegrams to decision makers when they help us protect our kids, or outdoor outings with elected officials and their families.

Colorado Mountain Mamas achieves our vision by working toward three initiatives:

  • clean air for healthy, growing lungs
  • a clean climate and restorative justice for a thriving future for all
  • protection for, and equitable access to, our public lands for future generations.

That combination is what will ensure Colorado is a place where all families can thrive and children can grow up healthy no matter their neighborhood.

To us, mamas include trans women, gender nonconforming people, non-binary people, cis women, and any other person who finds themselves identifying in some way with the incredible label of “mom.”

Everyone belongs in our work, that includes you.


Get involved quickly by taking action online!

We keep our members and supporters up to date on the meaningful actions they can do from home or in person to ensure a better, thriving future for their children (without all the inbox fluff and spam). These aren’t just petitions that go to the internet gods, they’re timely (and real) letters that go to directly to the decision makers who matter. Take action in 3 clicks or take more time and edit your letter to increase your impact, either way you are making a difference for your kid.

Check our current actions:


For the parents who have a bit of extra time, we provide opportunities to meet with decision makers and press, hold or attend events and outings, table at community gatherings to make meaningful connections, and we can make sure you’re at the table where decisions about your community are being made….all while having fun with our kids and including them in the process! No experience necessary – we will give you all the resources you need to be successful and make an impact.

If that sounds like something you’re interested in, we’d love to invite you to volunteer with us!
