I hope you have been enjoying the break, holidays, winter weather and new year. New Year is probably my favorite holiday of the year, and it's not just because of the parties. New Year is a time of serious reflection. A time to look back on the past year and consider what you did, and what kind of impact you are having on the world around you. Here at Energy Justice Network we are proud of the work did in 2010 and eager to raise the bar in 2011. Here are some of our current projects.
Power Shift 2011
It is now officially Power Shift recruitment season! Power Shift will be held April 1-4 in D.C. It is a national youth conference held in D.C. every other year and an incredible opportunity for young people to meet other like-minded young adults. Participants of the summit are passionate about the environment, global climate change, political action, energy issues, policy making and activism, which makes Power Shift an electric place to be.
This year has already started with a bang: in just two weeks over 200 grassroots leaders have signed up to be Power Shift Coordinators! Power Shift Coordinators recruit, raise funds and secure transportation to DC so that their community/campus can participate in this extraordinary event.
