Dear Professor Wilkie,

I am writing to ask for your help in spreading the word about the
Greenpeace Organizing Term (GOT), a leadership development program for
undergraduate students.

Through the GOT, students receive over 50 skills trainings on topics
ranging from how to plan campaigns to working with the media, meet with
the nation's top environmental leaders, and acquire hands-on experience
working on a priority Greenpeace campaign.  Since the program began one
year ago, we have trained twenty student activists. These students have
played active roles in key environmental campaigns, bringing about
campus clean energy victories and working to protect the last remaining
ancient forests in North America.
You can find more information at www.greenpeaceusa.org/got

The best way you can help is by forwarding the email below to your
classes or interested students.

We also would like to invite you to become a member of our referral
network. As a member of the referral network, you will receive a mailing
from Greenpeace twice a year asking you to post fliers, make
announcements in your classes or recommend freshmen and sophomore
students you think would be great for the program.

Please let me know if you can email the announcement below or if you
would like to join the referral network. We are excited to have you
involved!

Sincerely,

Amy Faulring
