Today is my third day as RAN’s new online organizer. My job is to figure out how we can all use the internet to organize and push for crucial environmental change. Luckily, looks like we’re already doing something right.
Toyota unveiled a plug-in Prius today and they’re going to start public road testing soon.
While I’m excited about the fact that Toyota is coming to its senses, I’ve even more excited because less than a month ago RAN launched an online petition asking Toyota to “add a plug to the Prius.”
I’m not saying that our petition was the sole cause of Toyota’s announcement, but I have to say that I’m feeling pretty good about seeing a big company take exactly the action that our supporters demanded.
My big hope here is that this is just the tip of the iceberg for both plug in hybrids and for RAN’s online activism.
