What is the purpose of Transition Town Fort Collins?

Transition Fort Collins will foster local resiliency, sustainability and culture by expanding our local economy, building community spirit and cooperation, and sharing best practices as we learn from and teach each other how to live in a world of finite resources. We want Fort Collins to be ready for our future, not struggling to react to it. >> More about TFC.

REGISTER VOTERS AT COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY:

The Associated Students of Colorado State University (ASCSU) will be hosting a voter registration drive and dispensing voter information on the Lory Student Center Plaza this fall for participation in the midterm elections in November. The tabling dates are still being worked out, but the first required training for voter registration begins this Wednesday, September 19th 6-7 pm at the Senate Chambers in the Lory Student Center. I want to stress this is a NON-PARTISAN registration event. Our goal is to encourage as many students to vote as possible. Below is the email I am forwarding from Yuval Rosenthal, Director of Community Affairs at ASCSU. Contact Yuval if you have any questions.

Hello!

If you are interested participating in something truly meaningful for both our community, as well as democracy, please consider joining ASCSU's voter registration efforts!

I am very excited to announce that we will be cooperating with New Era Colorado - a non-partisan civic engagement organization - to conduct voter registration drives and informational sessions around the Colorado State University campus during National Voter Registration Day (September 25th) and the first two weeks of October!

In order to legally register voters, an hour's worth of training is required. Accordingly, we will be holding two training sessions at the ASCSU Senate Chambers (Lory Student Center Room 204) on the following dates and times:

- September 19th, 2018, between 6:00 - 7:00 PM

- September 26th, 2018, between 6:00 - 7:00 PM 

Please register for only one session so we can train the largest group of volunteers for the drive! We encourage you to register for the September 19th session, so you can participate in the National Voter Registration Day, September 25th.  If you are interested in attending one of these, please RSVP at the following link:
