In Pittsburg, PA! It is going to be awesome. I am really excited.
Did you know that an estimated 30-50 percent of the food produced in the world goes uneaten? It’s time to think about how we can eliminate waste.
Thanks for letting me know. That could definitely help me out!
This April, youth leaders and changemakers will come together to debate the biggest foreign policy challenges facing us during this 2012 election year. We’re taking a hard look at security, jobs, climate change, global justice and more, and letting the candidates know how we feel. Setting a new course for our country is our great generational challenge.
Are you a young person who understands that the local is global? Are you frustrated with our political climate, and ready to make a noise so loud that it can’t be ignored? Accept the challenge. Join us.
Spread the word!
This might interest some followers. I’m thinking about going if I can find the money for it.
My friend and I are now officially the Campus Coordinators for Take Back The Tap at Michigan State University. I’m so happy about this.
Responsibilities may include:
- Recruiting interested students, facilitating group meetings, and providing guidance for group efforts
- Building strategic coalitions with faculty, staff, student groups, alumnae, and board members on your campus
- Coordinating outreach to influential religious groups, labor groups, elected officials, citizen activists, and businesses
- Recruiting and managing volunteer leaders to run strategic campaign actions
- Assisting in media outreach to educate millions of people (CLEARED BY FWW)
- Participating in national campaign strategy sessions and developing local tactics
- Maintaining records of work and assist with database development
- Arrange for speakers
- Run petition drives
- Meet with elected officials
- Hold media events
I don’t even remember when I last used this. But a short recap over the past few months:
- been involved in MSU Greenpeace, did some awesome actions (look here for our tumblr)
- decided to change my major to public policy so that I could eventually work that into campaign shit in my career future.
- am starting an organization at my school to ban bottled water (sign petition please!)
- last week I had a conference call with Take Back The Tap and me and my friend who are working on this water bottle thing together both have interviews for a campus coordinator position tomorrow.
- me and that same friend just started a vegan challenge where we will put money in a jar if we break our diet (money will be donated eventually). so far it’s been working out just fine. it helps that being lactose intolerant basically forced it upon me anyways.
Whoa! Even non vegetarians must be shocked.
