Power Shift 2011 is our opportunity to come together and define the way forward for our movement. Together we’ll celebrate our grassroots success stories, hear from movement leaders, and learn from and train each other to launch new campaigns. We’ll take bold action to set the tone in Washington and show them what true leadership looks like. If it’s anything like years past, Power Shift 2011 in April is bound to be historic.
Now more than ever, we need Power Shift 2011. Big Oil and dirty energy corporations continue to pollute our politics and devastate the health of our communities, but with grassroots people power we’re fighting back.
To meet today’s challenges we know we’ll need a diversity of tactics and approaches, and we’ll bring them all together at Power Shift 2011. We’ll stand up to Big Oil by bringing together innovative solutions from across the country and work with each other on community-led initiatives to create the clean and just energy economy we’re demanding. It’s time for our elected officials in Washington, DC to hear our demands and follow our lead.

Power Shift 2011 is being built from the ground up with your creativity. With the help of a Steering Committee, Working Groups, our partners, and you, we’ll have all of the top leaders of the movement involved.
