Southeast Regional Powershift: Youth Leader Training
- Poised to be one of the most transformational years ever, 2016 is already filled with seemingly unreal manifestations of injustice. With a growing income inequality gap, high corporate greed, increased influence by the Koch brothers, sea-level rise, police brutality, and continued environmental degradation we definitely have our work cut out for us.
- Bottom line, we need a shift in POWER.
- That is why on Feb 19-20, 2016 community leaders and organizers will be hosting a youth leadership training session for committed young people from around the region to assemble a team to mobilize for the Southeast Regional PowerShift conference this September.
- In this training we are looking for groups to explore connections between their goals and the power structures they are working against, the progressive framework that tie the work of activists and community leaders together, and develop a network of committed and passionate youth leaders who will lead us in the future.

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.
