Thousands of Young Activists Take On Power Shift

This month the Sierra Student Coalition worked with Energy Action Coalition to bring over 6,000 youth activists together at Power Shift -- 2013's largest demonstration of youth action for a clean energy future. Students from more than 720 campuses and communities converged in Pittsburgh, PA, to share, train, and act on climate, energy, and environmental justice issues.

"Fossil fuel companies are like zombies from the apocalypse," Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune told thousands of cheering activists. "They don't know they're already dead. We're living in the middle of a clean-energy revolution. Renewables are going head-to-head with fossil fuels -- and they're winning."
