Introducing Chicago's Youth Representative!

My name is DanaRae Marigmen, I attend Fenwick High School and I’m the new Youth Rep for ACE in Chicago.

As an ACE Youth Rep and the voice of all ACE high schools in the Chicago area, I will be a role model, aid and voice of encouragement to everyone who is willing to make a change – a change for the essential preservation of our environment and the betterment of our lives, both locally and globally.

I believe youth are the perfect candidates to be instruments to the public about climate change, and in turn, influence everyone around them.

Riding into a Future Free of Coal and Oil in LA

On October 10, 2010 –’s international day of action – there were more than 7,000 events held around the world to lower our emissions and raise our voices.

Speakers included, among others, LA City Council President Eric Garcetti, Ellen Page of Juno and Inception fame (check out her hot DOT here) and an outstanding young leader in the climate movement, Matt Dang of Environmental Charter High School.

Read the speech that moved the crowd to roar as Matt stepped off stage...

Because we know that young people will lead the change we need to see, and we're prepared to support them to get their voice and story heard. We need more Severn Suzukis in this world...
