Hello Friends,

Ah, well, as you may know, I am in love with the state of Vermont. Everything about it is perfect, including the University of Vermont where I planned on spending the entirety of my undergrad. Well, that dream came to an end when I got the bill in July stating that it would cost me $72,000 for the remaining two years. I can’t afford that, and no one should have to pay that much for a college education. So, I am not returning to UVM.

Over the summer, I worked for a non-profit known as, the Find for the Public Interest, which is a national non-profit organization that runs grassroots campaigns for other non-profits, including: US PIRG, Environment America, Fair Share, and HRC. So, I worked in a canvassing office just outside of DC as a Field Manager and a canvasser for Environment Maryland and Maryland PIRG. So, here I am:I can’t afford to go back to school. It’s too late to apply to other universities. I really like my job working towards positive social change and getting my feet wet in politics. Thus, I decided to take a full-time position with the organization as a director who runs an office in a state to win real grassroots results for various campaigns. I was placed in New Brunswick, NJ. Then, I get a call about an opportunity with this group to take a leave of absence from my current position, which I haven’t had time to start yet, and to go out to Colorado and run an election office that focuses on registering voters and campaigning for Democratic Senator Mark Udall. Of course, how can I say no? I figured I am taking a year off, I might as well make the most of it. I took the position. As it turns out, they don’t offer any type of housing. So, what am I to do? Can’t get a month to month lease? Don’t know anyone out there? I decided to buy a travel trailer (a current work in progress) that I can pull with my car, and to live in a campground in the Rockies and commute 45 minutes to Denver each day.

Obviously, I plan to go back to school next year. I am looking at much cheaper school’s to transfer to. So, I am going to live out of a two person travel trailer in Colorado until November. Then, after the elections, I’ll find a campground in Jersey and live there and work in New Brunswick on campaigns there. Then, in the summer, I may be moved to another state office (I am hoping Maine).

My life will be all over the place this coming year. So much excitement and so many new experiences to be had… Here I go!

May 28th 1892: Sierra Club founded

On this day in 1892, John Muir founded the famous environmental organisation the Sierra Club in San Francisco, California. Muir was a notable conservationist and preservationist and became the Club’s first president. The Sierra Club worked to establish and protect federal national parks, most famously Yosemite National Park. Their cause received a boost during Progressive Theodore Roosevelt’s presidency (1901-1909), who was a naturalist like Muir. Some of the Club’s most notable successes since 1892 came during Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society programme, including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act. The Sierra Club continues to be an influential group in the United States as one of the largest pressure groups in the nation. It has a significant influence over environmental issues and dedicates itself to tackling climate change and damage to the environment, most recently protesting against the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
