Hello Green Gallaudet!
I will be attending to the meeting this Saturday, November 15. I strongly encourage you to go as well. Interpreter will be provided. Contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What an exciting year to live in DC! Last Wednesday, young people turned out in record numbers to vote loud and clear for change. We voted to protect our future, for green jobs and a new energy for America. Thousands of DC youth, along with over 340,000 young people from across the country, signed the Power Vote pledge - and the results were felt everywhere. As President-elect Barack Obama and the 111th Congress get busy, DCYEA will be working hard to affect positive environmental change in our schools, communities, and government.
2009 will be a huge year for DCYEA! Let's get to work this weekend! Join us for our next meeting:
DCYEA MeetingSaturday, November 15th2:00 - 5:00 PM (political action training followed by the meeting)Room 327, Pryzbyla Center, Catholic University (directions below)
Many thanks to our friends at Catholic University for hosting us!
This meeting will start with an in-depth, interactive training/workshop on organizing effective political actions. We will be planning and discussing the International Day of Climate Action (December 6th), the new DCYEA Political Action Corps, and Power Shift 2009.
Directions to Meeting: The Brookland stop on the Red Line metro drops your right off on our campus. After going through the metro gates, turn left, go up the escalator and you'll see the campus. Go up the path towards the campus, cross the street, and go straight. After you pass the first building on your right, turn right (you'll be turning right on a strictly pedestrian street). You'll pass the architecture building on your left, and the next building will be the Pryzbyla Center (it will be across from a big lawn). At this point you'll be on the bottom floor, so go up 2 sets of stairs, turn right in front of Starbucks, and room 327 will be on your left. The Pryz is the most central location on campus, so if you can't find it anyone will be able to guide you.
