The 2009 ReEnergize Texas Summit will inspire, engage and empower hundreds of youth from across Texas to take bold action to repower the Texas economy and to reclaim our future.
In the first two days of the ReEnergize Texas Summit, Mar 28-29, 2009, students and non-student youth will be inspired and informed by speakers, workshops, and trainings providing solutions for a new future that tackle economic failure, environmental and social injustice and climate change. On Monday, Mar 30, we will march from Huston-Tillotson in East Austin across Interstate 35 to the Capitol Building where we will lobby the state legislature for clean and just energy legislation that creates new green jobs and protects our future.
