In November 2016, let’s take our support for climate action and make it real. For the first time, millennials are the largest voting bloc in an election, so we have the power to make a major impact.
The campaign will kick off labor day weekend 2016, involving POW Riders Alliance pro athletes, social media, email, video content and local market events in partnership with Patagonia and Teton Gravity Research, including college campuses in key battleground states.
POW will partner with Patagonia for a “National Voter Registration Day Celebration” on September 27th in four retail locations: Boulder, Denver, Chicago and Salt Lake City – bringing pro athletes into Patagonia stores to raise awareness for the importance of voter registration.
The goal of the campaign is to invite people to register online, or sign up to vote, so that POW can provide the tools and reminders for every election, state and federal, leading up to Election Day and beyond.
Winter Sports Tourism is a driver of Colorado’s Economy. Nationally, more than 23 million people participated in winter sporting activities, adding an estimated $12.2 billion in economic value to the U.S. economy, through spending at ski resorts, hotels, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, and gas stations.
Want to make a difference, but don’t know what to do? We have you covered. Because search engines can pull up an infinite amount of unverified lists with “meaningful” actions, most likely they’re wasting your time making you think you’re doing good. So we asked a group of some of the smartest people we know in the climate and sustainability communities for their most effective ways to make a difference and came up with their top seven.
Please to do the POW7 once a month (or as often as you can), and rest assured you’ll be making a difference.

When we ask Senators whether they’re hearing from their constituents on key issues, they mostly say no. Why? It’s not fun or maybe you don’t think it’ll make a difference? Wrong on both.
Take a minute and call your Senator – they need to hear from you and it’s one of the most effective things you can do right now. We’ve made it very easy – just dial the number, read the script, and ask your Senator to support the Clean Power Plan. And have some fun doing it.
