#RockTheVoteCOS has chosen COPPeR as one of 3 local nonprofits that will directly benefit from a financial incentive offered to motivate younger voters in the May 19 mayoral runoff. “If we can get registered voters age 30-44 to amp up their turnout to 20% in this election, Colorado Springs Independent and Colorado Springs Business Journal will donate $1,000 to each of these 3 nonprofits that make young professional’s lives awesome: Trails and Open Space Coalition, COPPeR, and Colorado Springs Urban Intervention.”

Arts Advocates Outreach Team Appreciation Lunch and Training
Wednesday, May 20 from 12-1 p.m. at Lucha Cantina
RSVP by May 14 to Angela Seals, angela@CulturalOffice.org
Arts Advocates are volunteers trained by COPPeR to speak knowledgeably about the local arts community. They form a team each summer to inspire and invite residents and tourists to experience all there is to do here in the Pikes Peak region!
COPPeR’s arts outreach booth invites people to sign up for the Peak Radar Picks weekly e-blast and spin the prize wheel for a chance to win tickets to a variety of community events. Last summer, we signed up over 1,000 new Peak Radar Picks email subscribers at a dozen events across the region!
Would you consider volunteering to help staff the booth for a few shifts this summer? If so, please rsvp for the training by May 14 and join us.
