The Road to Somewhere

Posted by DavidNYC

Regular guest-blogger Seamus is involved with a very worthy swing-state activism project, the Sierra Club's "Road to Somewhere." This program aims to increase turnout by educating voters about environmental issues. I think this is potentially a very powerful topic, especially when focused on local issues - such as mining safety in Appalachia and Yucca Mountain in Nevada, two topics we've discussed here, for instance.

The Sierra Club is running programs in almost all the swing states, including Seamus' native Pennsylvania. If you can stay for an extended period of time, Sierra will try to find you housing. I know a number of people who have taken this ultimate plunge (most with ACT), and almost everything I've been hearing back has been positive. But whether you can go for 6 weeks or one afternoon, this is yet another good program to join up with.
