Power Shift '09: Feb 27th - Mar 2nd
1. Recruit: Power Shift '09 will be a life-changing moment for many of the young people that are able to come. Are there young people in your life (or part of your organization) that could be inspired by this event?
2. Leverage: On March 2nd, 6-7,000 youth leaders will go up to Capitol Hill to lobby their members of Congress, by far the largest lobby day on climate/energy issues in our country's history. Is there anything you or your organization can do to back them up throughout that week? Can you generate calls or letters to Congress? How about a blog post?
3. Sponsor: They are working to raise $150,000 in scholarship funding to make sure Power Shift is as diverse as possible and that talented young people can attend regardless of financial constraints. Every dollar counts - please pitch in if you can: http://www.powershift09.org/own-the-movement
