Sunrise philly

This is the Philadelphia hub of the Sunrise Movement

We are the Philadelphia hub of Sunrise Movement. Sunrise is a youth-led movement to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. We’re building a movement of young people to make climate change an urgent priority across America, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and wellbeing of all people. We work to pass Green New Deal legislation at the local, state, and federal level that addresses climate change while ensuring that communities on the front lines of this crisis, including fossil fuel workers, are not left behind. fossil fuel workers, are not left behind.

Ema, 17, will not stop because she knows we cannot stop.

Our futures are on the negotiating table.

Let’s go get that #CivilianClimateCorps. March with us.

Great article from @rw_briggs featuring a rare quote from our podcast producer Kyla Van Buren who is usually behind the mic:

“We really don’t need to be cutting taxes for the rich…but instead, funding mental health services, public parks or libraries.”

Change comes in the streets, at the ballot box, and by stopping the gears of the status quo and demanding dignity and justice for our city and our communities.

Thank you @reclaimphila and @sunrisephilly for your leadership.
