Powershift 2011 April 15-18 , April 2-3 Facitilator Training; donate housing for out-of-town activists

Washington, DC
Dear Friend,

Want to take a leadership role in building the movement to get our nation off of dangerous fossil fuels?

Our friends at Energy Action Coalition and the New Organizing Institute are using Power Shift 2011 to equip 10,000 organizers with powerful skills for movement building, April 15-18 in Washington, DC.

It's a huge, monumentally important event. To pull it off, they need 1000 facilitators to help train new organizers at Power Shift. I'll be one. So will CREDO Political Director Becky Bond. Would you like to join us?

Read the message below, and sign up to attend the facilitator training


this weekend in Washington, DC.

Imagine a room packed with 10,000 young organizers, all driven to create a clean, just economy. Pretty cool, right? Well, that's exactly what you'll see at Power Shift 2011, taking place April 15-18 in Washington, DC.

Now imagine what would happen if every one of these organizers learns to use their own story to motivate others, build powerful teams, develop clear strategies, and then launches into action. Consider the ripple effect as they take their campaigns into every corner of the country. We're partnering with Energy Action Coalition, the organizers of Power Shift, to make that happen. But we literally can't do it without you.

Build your own skills, and make Power Shift a historic organizing moment, by becoming a Facilitator.


In order to train 10,000 organizers at Power Shift, we need over 1,000 Facilitators to lead the trainings. That's where you come in. Facilitators will be invited to a regional training on April 2-3. You'll go through the Movement Building Training yourself. You'll learn to tell your own story to motivate others, build effective teams, and create powerful strategies. But you'll also learn to teach these skills, build your training team, and participate in special workshops to help you develop your training and facilitation skills.

Then, at Power Shift, you and a team will lead a training for a group of Power Shift attendees. The success of this moment depends on organizers like you stepping up to build your own capacity, and learn how to build others' as well.

Apply to be a Facilitator at Power Shift now!



When you apply, you're assuming a real leadership role, and we'll support you with training, coaching and ongoing development opportunities. It's an unprecedented opportunity to both learn new skills yourself, and to ensure that Power Shift's Movement Building Sessions succeed in launching effective, local campaigns across the country. Our partners at Energy Action Coalition, the group that makes Power Shift happen, have an incredible plan to support all of these organizers as they return to the field. But we need your help to get things started.

Still have questions? Great! Apply now, http://www.powershift...­

one of our team members will call you in the next 48 hours to answer your questions and introduce you to organizers where you live.

I hope you'll join us for this historic moment in organizing,
