From Susan Paykin and our friends in SEA. ~Sahar
Join SEA and other Brandeis students as we head down to Washington, DC to attend the largest ever youth conference on climate change!
“In the middle of our new administration’s first 100 days, Power Shift 2009 will bring 10,000 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.”
The early-bird registration ends TONIGHT (2/1) so if you are interested in attending, please e-mail James Bartolacci (email@example.com).
Date: February 27th – March 2nd
Costs will not be more than $50/person.
We already have about 20 students registered, but are looking to bring at least 30 to represent Brandeis! About 15 of us attended PowerShift 2007, and came back with inspiring stories of amazing speakers (think Nancy Pelosi, Ralph Nadar, Van Jones) and a wealth of knowledge from the workshops and panels. Also, you get to meet and netwok with college kids from all over the country that care about social justice issues.
Again, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by tonight (2/1) if you want the early bird registration (otherwise it is $10 more!)
