Open thread: Powershift 2009

This weekend I stopped by Powershift 2009, a gathering of almost 11,000 youth environmental activists.

In the middle of our new administration’s first 100 days, Power Shift 09 will bring 10,000 young people to Washington to hold our elected officials accountable for rebuilding our economy and reclaiming our future through bold climate and clean energy policy.

It was an impressive crowd and it’s great to see so many young people pushing an environmental justice agenda.
Tomorrow there are plans for a climate lobby day with around 5,000 participants, which could be the largest lobby day in history.
Any Feministing readers attend Powershift this weekend? What did you think?
