Power Shift anyone?

Authors: Julia Rhee In 3 weeks, we will make HISTORY with Power Shift 2009. It will be 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. Ten thousand. 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!

Can you come?

Three ways to participate:

1. Come to Power Shift 2009 - February 27th - March 2nd, in Washington, D.C. When you register, be sure to select "Green 4 All" for the question "What coalition member-group are you most affiliated with?"

Contact youth@gfa.fchq.ca with questions about attending. 2. Sponsor a Young Organizer Green For All needs to raise $20,000 to send 200 low-income youth to the conference. Can you give $25 to the Power Shift 2009 Scholarship Fund today?

3. Apply for a Scholarship For community organizers, campus activists, hip hop artists, high school students, and other low-income young leaders of color who need financial support. Scholarship deadline: Next Friday, February 13th.

See you there! Julia P.S., You don't have to travel to D.C. to take action for green jobs. The Senate will vote on the economic recovery ANY DAY NOW. Tell your Senators to pass Obama's green recovery plan, and fund the Green Jobs Act at $500 million. Follow us on Twitter . We'll have live updates from Power Shift 2009, and more. Julia Rhee is the Youth Organizer for Green For All
