November 2022 Branch Stories
1) Story from David Chiang - Cerritos High Branch, California
Ever since I have joined Teens Against E-waste, my mom and I have been reaching out towards all of our friends and family. We have been asking them if instead of throwing away their batteries, they might give them to us. We would go to everybody's house and collect the batteries to help preserve and protect our environment. In a couple of months we were able to collect 654 batteries from generous friends and family who also wanted to make a difference and help protect our world.
2) TAE Leaders Met with U.S Congressman Alan Lowenthal to Discuss E-waste Policy Change and Received the Certificate of Recognition
TAE President Joshua Lou, Co-Vice President Katelyn Gan, Cambridge VA Branch President Kevin Waldman, Troy High Branch President Jacqueline Zhou, and Carmel Valley Branch President Bryan Huang met with U.S. Congressman Alan Lowenthal in his office to discuss e-waste policy change. They also received the Certificate of Recognition on behalf of Teens Against E-waste for "collecting over 300,000 batteries" and "advocacy and impactful action [that] is greatly appreciated locally and around the world." Congratulations!
