Kick Off the Fall with Power Vote!

August 24, 2010 at 7:28 pm Leave a comment

For many of us, the fall is filled with possibilities: the excitement of going back to school, beginning a new chapter, and in 2010, working to get young people out to the polls, many for the first time.

This Fall Southern Energy Network is launching the Power Vote campaign to flex young people’s political muscle. Power Vote is a national collaborative campaign we run with Energy Action Coalition partners to mobilize young voters and to demonstrate how important clean energy is to our generation!

Please join us for our first regional conference call of the semester, the Southern Power Vote Launch Call, tonight, Tuesday, August 24th at 9pm ET. On the call youth leaders from across the South will come together, and Southern Energy Network’s Executive Director Stephanie Powell will explain why this fall is so critical to the youth climate movement.

We need the Power Vote campaign on as many campuses in the South as possible. Why? Because it’s a critical time for young people to redefine politics in this country. Through Power Vote we will send a clear message to decision makers that it’s time to clean up politics and choose people over polluters!  You can help make this happen.

If you weren’t already excited, you have one more thing to get pumped about this fall: the 6th Southeast Student Renewable Energy Conference! The weekend of October 1-3, hundreds of students will come to Athens, GA, for three days of high-energy networking, skill building, and inspiration. Visit www.climateaction.net/ssrec for more!

We’ll keep you updated about all the additional awesome actions, events, and calls we’re hosting this fall.

For our future,

Dan, Jenna, and Stephanie
