Subject: Big Big News: Live Al Gore Webcast!

On October 29th at 8pm Eastern, Al Gore will be speaking to Power Vote groups across the country in a live webcast! 

This is huge.

Gore will be acknowledging your incredible work on the Power Vote campaign, driving home the extraordinary importance of young people taking action to halt our Climate Crisis, and calling us to hold our elected officials accountable for repowering America through our voice and our VOTE on November 4.


Right now nothing is more important than seizing the opportunity to fight global warming at the most important possible battleground: the ballot box.  And no one understands this more than the world's leading clean energy advocate and our favorite Nobel Peace Laureate.

We're going to be kicking off 6 days of hard core Get Out the (Power) Vote campaigning between October 29 - November 4, and Gore's talk with all of us will be an incredible and inspiring launch pad for action.  But even before the 29th, we have some work to do.  We need all of you to organize viewing parties in every city and on every campus in the United States.


Invite friends to your dorm room, reserve a classroom on campus, work with campus or local environmental groups, get a local movie theater to let you use it for the night, or find a projector and the side of a building...

When Mr. Gore is finished, take the opportunity with your captive audience to strategize your plan of attack for Getting Out the (Power) Vote in your local community in the days leading up to November 4. 

We'll have everything you need (including sexy Power Vote door hangers!), and for the first 100 viewing parties that register your pizza tab is going to be picked up by us!  

Please join us on our national conference call Wednesday, October 22nd, 9:00 PM EDT for all the details.  Number: (319) 279-1000, Code: 1050724*

We want to specifically say thank you to Al Gore and our great friends and partners at the Alliance for Climate Protection for making this happen.  We're so excited to see the unprecended number of (Power) Votes cast this election and to truly begin to Repower America!

Very sincerely,

Jessy Tolkan
Director, Power Vote
