The idea was begun when Beth Klein met with Attorney Angela Roff in 2018 and they produced the first Western Slope Summit held in Rifle. 140 people from Aspen, Vail, Glenwood, Rifle, Grand Junction, Basalt, Carbondale, Silt and everywhere in between were informed by an array of experts from the front range.
The attendees wanted more action. Beth Klein and Angela met with activist Peggy Steldt and started planning a task force. Gina Stryker came on board and helped organize the first meeting at True Nature Healing Arts. The second meeting was held at Third Street Center in Carbondale. Beth created the website and logo and agreed to host the meetings for the first year. The Klein Frank Foundation is funding the meeting space for year one.
Beth nominated Gina to be the initial President and agreed to provide support behind the scenes. Gina’s story was highlighted in the Post’s article which documents her trauma at a near miss kidnapping when she was young.
