Power Shift 2013
Right now thousands of young activists from all across the country are
streaming into Pittsburgh — *and the energy in the building is palpable.*
kicking off Power Shift 2013 with an /incredible/ opening session — and
we want you to join us! We’ll be livestreaming it all, and believe us,
you don’t want to miss this.
We’ve got Josh Fox of Gasland, Yudith Nieto of the Tar Sands Blockade,
Phillip Agnew of the Dream Defenders, and more!
*Check out the Live-stream starting at 7pm ET and follow along on the
official hashtag: #powershift
Check out the entire lineup for tonight!
* Bill Peduto, Pittsburgh City Councilman
* Reverend Gerard Durley
* Ta’Kaiya Blaney, 12-year old youth leader of Sliammon First Nation
* Josh Fox, director of Gasland
* Yudith Nieto, Tar Sands Blockade
* Phillip Agnew, Dream Defenders
Already Power Shift 2013 is making headlines, and making waves.
Yesterday the Associated Press and New York Times printed a story
about the growing efforts to diversify the environmental movement and
the need to do more. Tonight we have an incredible line-up of keynotes
that we hope will continue to re-define that movement.
Whether you are here with us in Pittsburgh, or watching from home, we
would love to have you engage. There’s lot of action and engagement on
on Facebook and Twitter on the official hashtag #powershift
so follow the conversation there!
Here we go!
Maura Cowley Executive Director Energy Action Coalition
