Power Vote Platform

Our generation needs a brand new vision for our future. We need to lead the world towards a just, clean energy economy that moves beyond dirty energy, creates green jobs for all, and secures our climate. Young voters signing our pledge commit to holding our leaders accountable through their sustained involvement, and create a Power Shift.

The Platform

1. GREEN JOBS NOW

Invest in millions of new green jobs, strengthen the American middle class and create new pathways out of poverty for millions more. By retooling our factories, revamping our schools, and rebuilding our communities, we can create a sustainable, just, and prosperous future for all.

2. INVEST IN A CLEAN ENERGY ECONOMY

Unleash American ingenuity and launch a new wave of affordable clean energy technology. We need more federal and private investments in public transit, ultra-efficient vehicles, and renewable energy like wind and solar.

3. CUT GLOBAL WARMING POLLUTION NOW

To ensure our health, prosperity, and security, scientists tell us we must rapidly drive US global warming pollution towards zero. We can and must accomplish this transition to a clean energy future in an equitable and just manner.

4. END OUR DEPENDENCE ON DIRTY ENERGY

Enact an immediate moratorium on new coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear plant construction and infrastructure, while phasing out existing plants and fossil fuel extraction and ensuring a just transition for the workforce and communities

5. RE-ENGAGE AS A LEADER IN THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

Global warming requires a global solution. We must shift the focus of American foreign policy from military intervention to international cooperation and join the world in pursuing peace and international development, thereby offering assistance to vulnerable and impacted communities.

6. TAKE DIRTY MONEY OUT OF POLITICS

It’s time to make government accountable to “We the People.” Put voters first and refuse campaign contributions from dirty energy interests.

Climate Organizers Needed.

FROM NATIONALS FTN:

Building the clean energy future we all want demands innovative, sustained pressure from the growing climate movement. The 110th Congress has failed to act, but next year we’ll have a new Congress, a new administration in the White House and a real chance for change.

We’re building a team for Focus the Nation 2009 to organize a National Teach-in, and build Green Democracy. The teach-in will educate and mobilize millions of students and citizens at colleges, universities, high schools, faith and civic organizations and businesses. Green Democracy will culminate in campus-to-congress dialogues engaging hundreds of members of the US Congress.

Join us! Please check out our job posting for organizers, and circulate to your networks. What better place to work than Portland, Oregon – recently ranked the greenest city in the United States!
