October 2009 Power Shift Regional Summits
According to the Power Shift West 2009 website, in the middle of our new administration's first 100 days, Power Shift 2009 brought 12,000 young people to Washington to hold our elected officials accountable for rebuilding our economy and reclaiming our future through bold climate and clean energy policy.
At Power Shift, we not only delivered our message of change to our elected officials, but we strengthened the climate and clean energy movement by infusing our nation's young leaders with new ideas, skills, connections with each other, and opportunities for employment and action.
Those leaders have taken the torch and are launching Regional Power Shift Summits all across the country. These summits are sure to ignite the passion we saw last spring in Washington in thousands of young people all across the country.
So this month, according to the Power Shift USA website --
Thousands of young people will rally across the United States for the Power Shift 2009 Regional Summits: 11 massive gatherings to exercise the political power of young voters and ask President Obama and Congress to pass a clean energy jobs plan by December to rebuild our economy, end our dependence on dirty energy, and bring America lasting security.
