Hello New Yorkers!
Breaking news about Power Shift New York: The Green Umbrella is postponing the convergence to April 2012.
Two weeks ago, Josh Fox brought to our attention that the Delaware River Basin Commission will be holding a hearing on October 21 in Trenton, NJ, to determine whether fracking will be permitted in the region. The Delaware River Basin supplies clean drinking water to over 15 million people in four states (NY, NJ, PA, DE). This is our call to action. We need to mobilize New York youth to rally at the hearing alongside thousands of others - it’s a pivotal moment in the anti-fracking movement.
While Power Shift New York has to be postponed, we’ve already laid the foundations for an awesome conference, and more time means more people, more workshops, and a better action! We need you to help us escalate to Power Shift and make Power Shift the tipping point for youth power and clean energy in New York.
