Power Shift 2011: April 18 Rally at Lafayette Park, Outside the White House

April 18, 2011


Is it too much to dream of an America where polluters are held accountable for their disasters? Is it too much to dream of an America where people aren’t burdened with the cost of pollution? Is it too much to dream of an America where citizens are in charge of our energy decisions, not big polluters? We don’t think so.

On Monday, April 18th, we’ll stand together to reclaim our democracy from big corporations and push our nation to move beyond dirty energy.

We’ll rally at Lafayette Park, outside the White House, and right across the street from the Chamber of Commerce, one of the biggest dirty energy lobby groups in Washington. We’ll call out big polluters and corrupt politicians, and make sure our leaders hear us loud and clear: we want a Power Shift.

Then we will form two marches, one storming Capitol Hill to lobby and hold our elected leaders accountable, the other will march from one corporate polluter’s office to another and return to Lafeyette Park for a dance party.

Every generation needs a new revolution. This one is ours.

WHAT: Fight big polluters, move beyond dirty energy rally

WHERE: Lafayette Park, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Washington DC

WHEN: Monday, April 18 10:00am-11:15am then march!
