Ours is the generation that will build a clean, just, and thriving future.
Energy Action Coalition is now the Power Shift Network. This evolution reflects our commitment to investing in a grassroots, bottom-up movement of young people to mitigate climate change and create a just, clean energy future and resilient, thriving communities for all.
Our new website is under construction. It will return better than ever very soon! Click here to read a blog post from Lydia Avila, our Executive Director, about why we made this change.
In 2016, young people face a broken political system, racism, inequality, student debt, and the climate crisis. At the same time, we are building a strong, intersectional, bottom-up movement to halt climate change, shift the power and change the system.
We resolve to stand together in mutual support and solidarity to build a clean, just and thriving future for our country. We are not afraid to speak truth to power, to sacrifice and to demonstrate our commitment to changes that seemed impossible to previous generations. We are the most diverse generation in history, united with one voice, demanding justice for all.
We come together as a network, despite many differences, because we know that our vision will only be realized by working together. Indeed, our diversity makes us strong. To scale our power and make the change we need, we must respect, engage and elevate all perspectives, especially those who have been systematically shut out of economic and political decision-making.
To achieve these goals, the Power Shift Network is bringing together leaders — from the smallest campus groups to the largest national organizations — to fight for climate, clean energy, and social justice. Together, we will mobilize the collective power of young people to mitigate climate change and create a just, clean energy future and resilient, thriving communities for all.
This is a bottom-up, grassroots hub for young climate activists like you. Click here to let us know how you want to push our movement forward.
The Power Shift Network just launched at Power Shift 2016 Northeast—the first of four regional convergences designed to recharge the youth climate movement by starting in our own communities.
