[PERSONAL NOTE to fellow attendees: I postponed my 485-mile "Stop Keystone XL" ride to the White House by a month so it would coincide with Power Shift 2013. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible over the next several days. I just pedaled 180+ miles from Cleveland to invite everyone attending Power Shift to sign our PETITION calling on President Obama to stop the construction of Keystone XL's southern leg. If you would like to get involved with our campaign, please seek me out.

53 As our movement gets ready to flood Pittsburgh for Power Shift 2013 on Friday, there’s a critical campaign underway to provide relief and justice to communities that have already been impacted by fracking in the region.

Communities in Dimock, PA, Pavillion, WY and Parker County, TX have had their water contaminated by fracking, and the EPA has failed them — dropping its investigations and leaving them without clean water.

So today we want to lend our support and raise money to provide clean water to families in Pennsylvania who have had their water poisoned by fracking.

We’re working with our friends and allies to kick-off a Clean Water Mob — a major push to raise money to deliver fresh water to communities impacted by fracking AND to raise the demand for the EPA to take real action.

Join the Clean Water Mob: Help deliver clean water to families impacted by fracking!

Powershift is not the only source of excitement within the campaign this semester though.
