BOULDER, Colo. – October 22, 2018 – Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) today announced its endorsement of Jason Crow for Colorado’s 6th Congressional District.

“Outdoor Industry Association is proud to endorse Jason Crow in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District,” said Amy Roberts, executive director of OIA. “We believe Jason will be a strong advocate for Colorado’s land and water, will take meaningful action to combat climate change and will be a champion of the 6th Congressional District’s $2 billion outdoor recreation economy. We look forward to his election to Congress.”

“Public lands in Colorado and across the west are under assault in Washington. That’s a threat to our economy, our planet, and our Colorado way of life,” said Jason Crow. “I’m proud to stand with the Outdoor Industry Association in defense of the spaces that make our state a great play to work, live, and play.”
