Website sunrisemvmt Sunrise Movement

Sunrise Movement is a movement of young people fighting to stop the climate crisis and win a Green New Deal. Together, we will force the government to end the era of fossil fuel elites, invest in Black, brown and working class communities, and create millions of good union jobs. We’re on a mission to put everyday people back in charge and build a world that works for all of us, now and for generations to come.

We are fighting for what science demands – government action that actually meets the scale, scope and urgency of the climate crisis.

We believe that in order to win the world of our dreams, we must build a movement of thousands of young people across race and class to take to the streets and disrupt business as usual until we force the change we need. Together, we will shift public opinion, elect Green New Deal champions, and fight for Green New Deal policies at every level of government.

Only then can we take over our institutions and win the world we deserve.
