Change It Speakers Announced!
Here's a new cross-post from the Change It blog.
You heard it here first! Well, that is, unless you were checking the Change It Participant Info page earlier today. The speaker list for Change It 2007 has been posted!
We’re very excited to report that Senator Bernie Sanders will be joining us again this year. Bernie is near and dear to this Vermonter’s heart (I gave him a tour of the Seventh Gen offices once), and last year he was one of the best-received speakers at Change It 2006. Maybe this time around the Senator will talk about recently introducing the Global Warming Pollution Reduction Act, authored and initially offered last year by Senator Jeffords.
We’re also super excited to announce that Representative Henry Waxman will be speaking at Change It. Waxman is a champion of many environmental and social justice issues, and has recently been in the news for introducing the Safe Climate Act.
You can read more about Senator Sanders and Representative Waxman by clicking their links on our The speaker list .
Oh, and this isn’t on the Participant Info page, but it’s cool. Lindsay at Greenpeace has created a map (viewable using Google Earth or Google Maps) of where all 200 students are coming from next week to train in DC and start gaining the skills to Change It! Check it out!
