It’s time to show both our campus and national leaders that we must move beyond coal to clean energy solutions starting immediately. With so many recent disasters, accidents and spills in the dirty energy industry, we simply can’t wait. Communities are at risk from our addiction to these outdated fuels, but there is hope for exciting and innovative solutions available right now!
Therefore, this is a really exciting time for the MSU Beyond Coal Campaign–we’re gearing up for our biggest event of the year: a clean energy rally!!
It’s next week on November 17th at 2pm in the courtyard behind Wells Hall and the International Center. This event is part of a National Day of Action, so campuses across the nation are all going to be uniting in clean energy leadership. We’re all going to be featuring pinwheels at our events which represent clean energy, so come to the rally on Wednesday November 17th to make a pinwheel that will be delivered to Congress in D.C. after Thanksgiving break to show them you’re ready for clean energy.
In the meantime, in order to continue building up visibility for the campaign as well as for the Clean Energy Rally, we’re having:
-Wednesday table petitioning in Phillips Hall from 12-3pm and we’re also going to be making pinwheels there too 🙂
-Friday Dorm Storm for Pinwheels 3:30-5:30pm–we’re meeting in front of Brody caf
-Sunday Visuals Making Party 4-6pm in the main lounge of the union
And, as always–we’re having our Thursday weekly meeting at 7:30pm in 114 Berkey
This week, we’re having another speaker, Josh Buswell-Charkow, who is the Campaigns Director for Green Corps. He’s going to be doing a training at the meeting, so this is a great opportunity to learn from someone who knows the field, and knows how to make a successful campaign! Also, we’re going to be talking about some of the VIP meetings we’ve had the past two weeks. It’s going to be an especially interesting meeting, so we hope you can make it!
If you have any questions about the campaign or the upcoming events we’re planning, then don’t hesitate to ask!
