We are strictly an aboveground movement. We will not answer questions regarding anyone’s personal desire to be in or form an underground. We do this for the security of all involved with Deep Green Resistance.
Join us in creating a serious culture of resistance to industrial civilization as part of the growing Deep Green Resistance movement and help actualize a strategy to save the planet. Deep Green Resistance Colorado is always looking for committed members to join our action group. The steps to joining are as follows:
- Read the Statement of Principles, Code of Conduct, the DGR Strategy, and Responsibilites of a Member. If you agree with all of these, send us a short paragraph introducing yourself and why you want to be a part of DGR Colorado.
- Next, we will schedule a time for an interview, where a DGR Colorado member will talk with you about the movement and becoming involved.
- If you seem like you would be a good fit for DGR Colorado, you can then join as a 3 month probationary member. During this introductory period, it is expected that you take a security culture training, read the DGR book (if you haven’t already), read Derrick Jensen’s Endgame (if you haven’t already), and engage in regular meetings and action with the rest of the DGR Colorado group
- If after three months the group feels that the new member is a good fit with the group, the applicant is formally welcomed as a member of DGR Colorado.
It should be noted that one does not need to be a member of Deep Green Resistance Colorado to volunteer, offer support, or be an ally. There are many ways that you can be involved and help the movement as a whole and our action group, so please get in touch if this describes you.

Choice between Aboveground and Underground
To be successful in saving the planet, resistance will need both aboveground and underground components. Broadly speaking, aboveground groups do not carry out risky illegal actions, and are organized in ways that maximize their ability to use public institutions and communication structures. Underground groups exist primarily to carry out illegal or repressed activities and are organized in ways that maximize their own security and effectiveness. Every budding activist must choose between working aboveground or underground, as a strict firewall must exist between the two. The Deep Green Resistance movement, including DGR Colorado, is an aboveground movement.
