Share the Plate October: The Sunrise Movement
The Sunrise Educational Fund is the tax-exempt 501-c-3 branch of the Sunrise Movement, which is 501-c-4. Sunrise supports the Green New Deal and asks that you work to obtain sponsorship by Congressman Jim Cooper to add to the 104 current sponsors.
Sunrise has grown exponentially since 2017. It is in many, many cities. The movement we are building is a young, multi-racial movement that represents many different backgrounds. We especially want to invest in leaders who have historically been left out of the political process, including people of color and working-class people.
We are an organization dedicated to ensuring the longevity of our planet through solutions to the climate crisis. We're building an army of young people to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. Right now, the leaders supposed to tackle the climate crisis are either asleep at the wheel or purposely driving us toward catastrophe so their oil and gas billionaire friends can keep raking in profits. We must wake them up to reality.
We are ordinary young people who are scared about what the climate crisis means for the people and places we love. We are gathering in classrooms, living rooms, and worship halls across the country. Everyone has a role to play. Public opinion is already with us - if we unite by the millions we can turn this into political power and reclaim our democracy.
