"The youth vote has made its presence
felt before. In the past two presidential elections, it was the youth
vote that tipped the scale and decided the outcome of the race. We
turned out in unprecedented numbers, in large part based on Obama's
promises to take meaningful climate action. For many youth, and millions
of other Americans, our vote is also a climate vote -- a vote for a
livable future. We will be using our votes, our voices, to defend that
future with a renewed urgency -- as we showed in last week's primary."
"The climate movement is a growing political force, and you can
expect us to be a permanent and powerful part of the political
landscape. We'll work to shape it until it reflects the America we need
to see. As climate change takes an increasing toll on our economy and
way of life, we will see more and more people taking a stand on the
issues that matter most to America's future.
You'll be seeing us in electoral politics, mobilizing votes and
going on the offensive. You'll see us at the polls too. We'll be the
ones voting for our future. We hope you join us."
