We have one hundred meetings set up with U.S. Congressional offices. That’s right -- one hundred different meetings set up with your representatives. This April, we’ll tell them what matters to us. We’ll show up at the offices of climate deniers like Inhofe and Upton and we’ll pass our message along.
Congress might be at recess, but we aren’t playing around.
In 2007, we swarmed the halls of Congress in our green hard hats and told our elected officials what they needed to hear -- youth were calling for a clean and just energy future. In 2009, we wore our green t-shirts (and the hard hats) and participated in the largest lobby day on a single issue in U.S. History. We demanded that they cut carbon emissions and pass strong climate legislation.
Now, in April 2011, we will hold another historic Power Shift conference and another historic lobby day. We will spend the weekend building our movement, and on Monday, April 18, we will fill the halls of Congress to demand that our elected officials protect our clean air and clean water.
