STUDENTS AND COMMUNITIES OF COLOR ACROSS CALIFORNIA UNITE


The Clean Energy Tour Will Bring Music, Awareness to Campuses Statewide

Young people and communities of color are fighting back against dirty energy companies to determine the outcome of this November’s California election. Over 100,000 Californians across the state will be joining the effort by pledging to vote and utilizing smart phones and text messaging to activate and educate their communities. The Clean Energy Tour is sponsored by the California Students Sustainability Coalition (CSSC), and at UCSD, co-sponsored by the Student Sustainability Collective

The six city solar powered concert tour is the largest viral voter mobilization campaign for California’s critical election and unites communities of color and students across the higher education system. The tour launches on 10/10/10 at Laney College in Oakland in partnership with 350.org’s Global Work Party, the biggest-ever day of positive action on climate change. Shortly thereafter making its way to UC San Diego on October 21!

Headlined by hip-hop legends Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth, whose beats and words are as deep and true as the cause they promote. Other artists at UCSD will include Freedom, a Haitian-born hip hop artist and environmental activist, top LA radio DJ Garth Trinidad, and electro rocker and cultural activist Mike De La Rocha. Did we yet mention the performances will be free!

Young people have the power to change this country and this November we will. The Clean Energy Tour will mobilize these constituencies to clean up politics and demand that our elected officials follow our leadership in creating a clean and just energy economy and millions of job.

So come out this Thursday October 21 at 6:00 pm in Price Center Ballroom East for a live show with nothing but positivity to spread around.
