Here are two of the Greenpeace semester students, Jen and Alex, practicing some role play for the volunteer day of action today. Chris and Jen are facilitating a great day of canvassing with families from the local community that want to get involved in the Quit Coal Campaign.
More info will be on its way as the day goes on and we spend some time with awesome North Carolinians!
We sat down to talk with Liz (pictured above), who used to work at the Marshall coal-fired power plant. The Marshall plant pollutes the community of Mt. Holly, N.C. where our Summer 1 class has been going door-to-door collecting petitions. Liz recently quit her job at the Marshall plant and is now working with Greenpeace to shut it down. Listen to part of her story here.
Hmm, this coal tastes quite well today… Which reminds me, I have to solve the weekly crossword! And do some sparkly magic~~ Then it is time for a chat with Mr. Unicorn. He always says the most fascinating things!
(don’t judge me for knowing what he does when he’s alone ;; ) ….
…. Oh… H-hi there, Arthur… Fancy seeing you here, hehe…
