Councilor Garduño Helps Energize the Power2Change Campaign

On Wednesday March 26, The Sierra Club launced the Power 2 Change Campaign and released their Power 2 Change Report. For the launch of the campaign, a press conference was held infront of the solar carport at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque.

The Power 2 Change Campaign involves a grassroots organizing effort to educate the public around energy issues for the 2008 Elections and challenge the candidates to push America towards clean and renewable energy.

The report shows the contrast in competing goals for Americas energy use and how crucial they'll be in the upcoming elections. The report also contains a section which focuses on New Mexico; that asks whether New Mexico will continue the toxic uranium mining or be the pilot for the solar manufactoring industry.

Also, here is a link to a KUNM Radio interview with Michael Casaus, from Sierra Club; Odes Armijo-Caster of Sacred Power; and Councilor Rey Garduño, about the Power2Change Campaign.
