Watch out Capitol Hill. A little over four months from now thousands of youth from across the country will once again descend on DC for POWER SHIFT!

Power Shift 2007 and 2009 were huge successes and life changing for the attendees. Thousands of students left the conference empowered and inspired. We made headlines with the largest lobby day on a single issue in history. We showed that our generation cares about clean energy, healthy communities, and creating good green jobs. After the mid-term elections it is clear we still have work to do. We’re angry about corporate power, about climate deniers being in office, about our future being put at risk. Together we’ll create a Power Shift by coming together behind new campaigns, training one another, supporting community projects, and making our voices heard in Washington, DC at Power Shift 2011!

You heard it here first: the Mid-Atlantic region is bringing 2011 youth to Power Shift! Last night a dozen youth leaders converged over the phone for the first of many discussions on how to make that happen. Want to join the team? Sign up here.
