Building Political Power

We're the Ones We've Been Waiting For

Day in and day out the energy at Power Shift HQ is growing. Deadlines are coming and going faster than we can imagine and, every time we look up, another day has come to an end and we're one step closer to Power Shift 2011. Each and every one of us is reeling with excitement about what's about to happen in just 21 days as we take part in the largest environmental organizing training in history.

It's amazing to see that this energy isn't just in our offices. Power Shift attendees are finding incredibly creative ways to share their stories, take action in their communities, and… to simply get here.

At last weekend's regional training events in the Northeast and California, organizers shared their stories about how they got involved in environmental activism.

When frontline communities are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back.

I have been working for years to make a website that unites the forces and institutions of the green movement. This is coming as an interactive media, ECOmedia, to allow all people to communicate. Our goal is to have the domain it.eco as our network platform. Here you will have a place to save and share your experience. All is one, and the Queendom of ECO compliments the Kingdom of God in real time.

Mourn, Then Organize.

It’s hard to know what to say right now.

Last night, Americans faced a hard truth: racism, sexism, xenophobia, bigotry, hatred and fear are still very much alive and well in our country. Those darkest, ugliest impulses celebrated an enormous victory last night.

But I’m writing to make a commitment to you, and to everyone I love, that we will not let this kill our spirit.

If you can help, please let me know. Thank you! Cheers, Debbie [ Read More... ]
