In 19 days, we will make HISTORY with Power Shift 2009, the biggest lobby day on climate and green jobs in U.S. history. And the biggest youth lobby day of any kind - ever. We're rolling deep -10,000 strong. 10,000. That's 100 youth in each Senate office. Young people and people of color voted in record numbers. Now our elected leaders have to listen to us: We want millions of green jobs and we want 'em NOW!
