Hey everyone! Sunrise needs your help! We’re looking for connections in MN, MI, NY, FL, and PA.
Sunrise is going on a speaking tour again this Spring! Our trained Speakers will talk to thousands of young people about climate change, why it's happening, and how we can link arms across this nation to stop it together.
If you know HS teachers, professors, pastors, community leaders, or friends who can connect us to these kinds of people in these five states - tag them here/have them fill out the form (https://www.sunrisemovement.org/host/). Hit me up if you have questions/ideas! — with Alex Mijares, Tiffanie Jeffreys, Garrett Blad and Dyanna Jaye.
Sunrise Fellows, 2018
Sunrise Movement June 12 2018:
We did it! We just wrapped a powerful, inspiring week together with seventy new #SunriseSemester2018 fellows. We shared stories, learned the skills and craft of organizing, and built relationships that will serve us for years to come. Now, fellows are off to Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Minnesota to build the youth army in 2018.
We're still working to make sure each one of these incredible humans can go all-in on the elections through November. Can you pitch in? http://bit.ly/f-make-the-sunrise — with Howie Stanger, Sam Quigley, Drew Magnolia Arnum, Emerson Michael Skufca, Cormac Martinez del Rio, Gabby Chihiro, Dyanna Jaye, Jillian Hanson, Sara Blazevic, Stephen O'Hanlon, Cody Purchase, Cody Jay Purchase, Olivia Freiwald, Jeremy Ornstein, Nicholas Jansen, Felton Pierre, Jerrica Jackman, Madison Daisy, September Sky Porras, Izzi Graj, Nicole Catania, Lauren Maunus, Miles Goodrich, Victoria Fernandez, Phillip Brown, Marian Michaels, Elizabeth Gilbert, Jordan Mudd, Christian Huerta, Claire Morrison, Renata Leighton, Will Lawrence, Raven Geiger, Arjun Jayaraman, Vanessa Harris, Sam Taylor, Varshini Prakash, Gunther Melander, Erin Bridges, Haley Maurice, Aru Shiney-Ajay, Christian Galo, Marcela Mulholland, Emily Grace LaShelle, Sophia Elan Zaia, Emma Walker, Evan Weber and Brian Stilwell.
