Go Deep Green

This fall I served as a community mentor to freshman at Marin School of Environmental Leadership in San Rafael. They are lobbying the Dixie Board of Trustees to buy 100% renewable energy from My Clean Energy. More than 300 people have signed their petition. I support the move to Deep Green. Do you?
