iMatter March | Albuquerque, NM
DATE: May 8, 2011
START LOCATION: Highland High School
END LOCATION: UNM
We will march from Highland High School at 1pm, down Central, to UNM! There, we will have information on green businesses (as the consumer generation, we have more power than we think!), and a Mother’s Day picnic. Our volunteer session will be Saturday morning, please contact us (via the Contact Organizer form) if you want to help! We would greatly appreciate it. Our final planning meetings will be this Thursday and next Thursday, 5:30-7:00 at the Erna Fergusson library, feel free to stop by for more information. See you there!
Hi, I’m Akilah Sanders-Reed, and I’m 16. I live in the East Mountains, just outside of Albuquerque. I work on the national core team for Kids Vs Global Warming and iMatter, and I am so excited to be organizing here in New Mexico! This is the missing piece of the climate movement, and we’re going to make it happen. But, none of us can do this alone. I am lucky enough to have a great team for this event – MaryVail, Vanessa, Desireee, Carol (my mother!), Chelsea, Dana, Jason, Martha, and Mara. With one exception (guess which), they are all young people who are ready to lead this revolution.
