If you bought a hotel room through us, we have booked it directly for you with the hotel on our master account, and placed you with an roommate if applicable. You will be receiving a separate email introducing you to your roommate, and confirming your dates for your room. We have sold out of rooms, but you may contact the hotel directly to see if there are any cancellations.


The hotel is the Holiday Inn Stapleton located at 3333 Quebec Street, Denver Colorado 80207. Their number is 303-321-3500.


If you called the hotel before today and they informed you that you did not have a reservation for a room, but you booked one through us, do not be alarmed. They have just finished inputting the data, and your reservation is now in their system.

Through the generous donations of our member groups;, Earthjustice, Earthworks, the Sierra Club, the Center for Biological Diversity, and Clean Water for North Carolina and grassroots donations from folks like you, we have been able to provide over a 100 scholarships this year. If you would like to still make a donation to the scholarship found – you may do so here! We expect some folks to show up the day of who need a registration waiver and we need to raise money to cover those costs.


Monday’s Action


As with our summit in Dallas, we will be closing the summit out with an action on Monday. The action will start at 10:00am at Commons Park in Downtown Denver and go till about 2:00pm. Several groups have adopted targets along our march route, where various types of actions will be occurring. There will also be a short rally at the Capitol Building, followed by more actions, all ending at the Govenor’s Mansion.


There is a Facebook event for the march here. Please share this with your networks.


We will be providing a luggage check (in the Colorado room) and transportation to and from the hotel on Monday morning for anyone who needs it. If you are a local Colorado person and wish to not deal with parking in downtown, you should park at the hotel and take the bus.


If your flight home is before 4:30pm, please bring your suitcase with you (you may store it on the bus) and book transportation directly to the airport form the Governor’s Mansion. Otherwise you should have enough time to take the hotel shuttle to the airport.
