I am going doing the Greenpeace Organizing Term this summer in DC and i need to raise money to attend. They will be training me on how to effectively and efficiently run/lead environmental grassroots campaigns in my respective community.

Hi, My name is Tabitha. I am an International Relations student at Michigan State and i was accepted into the Greenpeace Organizing Term in DC this summer.


Every fall, spring, and summer a group of around 30 young, concerned, individuals are selected to receive training through this program. I will be gaining the skills needed to go out into my community and start effective grassroots campaigns that push for sustainable development, proactive policies, and environmental accountability.


This is something that is important to me because I believe that much of the injustices we witness around the world are connected to environmental degradation. For example, coal extraction not only hurts the environment where it's mined but also affects the air, water, and health quality of the towns around those coal mines (who are usually too poor to vocalize these problems).

The cost of the program will be $3950, however this does not include housing and cost of living in DC.
Housing will cost about $3200 and cost of living (hopefully) no more than an extra $700 (it's a 3 month program)


Though the cost is a lot higher than the goal i put up, I would still feel so blessed if i was able to raise even over $500.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Don't be afraid to donate, every dollar counts (even just $5) : )

Tabby
