Introducing the newest class of the Greenpeace Semester!
They hail from many different places: Tennessee, California, Michigan, Ohio, Virginia, Indiana, Missouri, and Envigado, Colombia. They have joined Greenpeace for the next five weeks in Washington D.C. to learn many of the important skills of environmental activism to take back to their respective communities. They'll be participating in workshops, skills trainings, and traveling for a week to get experience campaigning on an environmental issue.
Stay tuned and follow their adventures on Twitter, on Tumblr, or future posts here.
Welcome Stephanie, Angie, Melissa, Alex, Ben, Vinnie, Mackenzie, and Jackie!
