PowerShift 2009

La proxima semana Democracia USA auspiciara la participacion de jovenes Latinos en la conferencia sobre el calentamiento global y la economia verde llamada PowerShift 2009.  Democracia USA ha seleccionado a jovenes Latinos de alrededor del pais que han demostrado un compromiso hacia su comunidad y han expresado su interes en el tema del medio ambiente. Durante la conferencia los jovenes Latinos tendran la oportunidad de participar en talleres de entrenamiento y en foros de liderazgo e informacion sobre el medio ambiente.  Visitenos de nuevo para obtener informes en tiempo real sobre las experiencias de estos jovenes durante la conferencia.

    Reflections of PowerShift 09

    My first day of PowerShift 09 was excellent! I really enjoyed the two sessions that I attended. The first one was named, ” Racism without Racists.” We discussed the four frameworks of colorblind racism. They are abstract liberalism, naturalization, cultural racism and minimalization.

    The second session I attended on Saturday was ” Get Rich or Die Trying.” They talked about fundraising strategies. The two speakers talked about many ways in which we can approach corporations and different groups to raise funds. The main concept about fundraising is that you need to know what you are going to do to then decide who you will be asking for help with funds.
