Stand up!








Into
the halls
of
power....





Every
citizen
should walk
one day...







into
the halls
where
our laws
are made.






Every citizen
should
stand
one day...







for
a
cause....

something
you
believe
in....







Today
I stand
for
clean air!






The
statehouse
has
clean air.

Shouldn't
we
all?





It's not
the first time
I've stood up
for
clean air.








Al
and I

fought
a
power plant...






many
years
ago.



(We
lost.)






But we
learned
the joy
of
fighting...


350.org






the

good

fight.















Today
many young
people
stand
together...

This weekend
10,000
young people
stood up
in Washington
for clean energy.











This day
I stand
in the
Indiana
statehouse
for clean air.





Dozens
stand
with me.





Kids
touring
the
statehouse...








see
red
shirts.





They
see
people
who care.





What
will
you
stand for?







Clean
air?






Clean
water?






National
parks?












...
owls?







I
promise
you













if
you
don't
speak out....











we
could
lose
it
all.













So
go for it!
