I want to invite you to one of the best and definitely most important â€“ parties of the year: the New York City celebration of Green Corpsâ€™s fifteenth anniversary. Green Corps is an extraordinary organization that trains the next generation of environmental and social change leaders, people on the front lines of todayâ€™s biggest environmental and political battles.
Since graduating from Yale in 1999, I have spent the past eight years working with Green Corps to help recent college graduates launch their careers in environmental and social change advocacy. Weâ€™re celebrating our 15th anniversary with a big bash and benefit in NYC on March 1st at the beautiful Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery in Chelsea from 7:00 â€“ 9:00 pm. It will bring together some of New York Cityâ€™s top environmental, political, and social change leaders (list below). The event is being organized by Yale alumni Glenn Hurowitz (Class of 2000) and Adam de Havenon (Class of 2002), and includes several Yalies on the host committee, including Frances Beinecke (President of NRDC), Seth Brown (Class of 2000), Adam Gordon (Class of 2000), Annie Decker (current), Diana Adams (Class of 2001), Margie Klein (Class of 2001), and Matt Runkle (Class of 2000).
RSVP now by emailing email@example.com. Entrance tickets are $50 in advance and $75 at the door. Contributions can be made at https://www.oursecureserver.org/greencorps/support.html.
Weâ€™re honored to have author and pioneering conservationist William Powers as our speaker. Mr. Powers will have just returned from a five year stint in Bolivia, where he worked deep in the Amazon with indigenous people to protect more than 3 million acres of endangered tropical forest, a groundbreaking, prize-winning project that leveraged the financial resources of the some of the worldâ€™s biggest polluters to conserve the forests that produce the worldâ€™s oxygen â€“ establishing a model for tackling global warming around the world. Mr. Powers wrote about his experiences in his recent book Whispering in the Giantâ€™s Ear and Blue Clay People, and is the author of the childrenâ€™s book Kusau and the Tree of Life. His essays and commentaries on global issues have appeared in the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune, and on National Public Radio.
