Energy Action Coalition is kicking off itsPower Shift youth summits beginning today, October 9. The summits will gather young people to exercise their political power and ask for climate change action from Congress and President Obama. Eleven of these regional summits are scheduled on college campuses that span both coasts, from Oregon to Pennsylvania.
The summits are aimed at training activists and getting individuals involved on a local and regional level. Thousands of youth are rallying to press the president and Congress for a clean energy jobs plan by December, in order to rebuild the economy and work towards a clean and renewable energy future.
