Power Shift 2011: It’s Happening

December 16, 2010 at 4:58 pm Leave a comment

That’s right. Power Shift 2011 is happening. Mark your calendars now to spend April 1-4 at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC with thousands of your closest friends from across the country.

If you didn’t have the chance to attend Power Shift 07 or 09, this is your chance to be part of a transformational, awe-inspiring event. Previous speakers have included Van Jones, Ralph Nader, and my hero, Majora Carter. In 2009, activists attending Power Shift took part in the Capitol Coal Action, where Bill McKibben and Jim Hansen led the charge in shutting down the Capitol coal plant, which burns toxic coal to power Congress.

The first step in the journey to Power Shift 11 is to sign up as a Power Shift Coordinator. Coordinators help spearhead recruitment efforts on campus and in their community, which is one of the most important ways you can help get tons of folks to this amazing event. You can sign up here, and myself or Dan Cannon will be in touch with you soon to get things running on your campus.

You’ll also need funds to get there.  Now is a great time to ask your family members to contribute to your Power Shift fund for the holidays! Starting in January 2011, we’ll also be rolling out additional resources to help with fundraising.

Perhaps most importantly, we’ll be voting each and every day to help Power Shift win $50,000 from the Pepsi Refresh content. These funds will be earmarked specifically for travel stipends and scholarships for students to attend Power Shift.

In order to win, we need your help!  Will you commit to voting each and every day?  Here’s how you do it: Starting January 1, you’ll text, use Facebook, and vote via the Pepsi Refresh website. We’ll send out the codes closer to January 1, but you can go ahead and sign up for the Progressive Slate, which helps Power Shift win, atwww.theprogressiveslate.com.

I wouldn’t ask you to do this if it wasn’t important.  When you roll out of bed at noon on New Year’s Day, check your mail and start the year off right by voting to get $50k for Power Shift.

I can’t wait to see YOU in D.C. for Power Shift 2011.
