    “Come out and learn more about Sunrise and the Green New Deal, while putting pressure on our elected representatives to support a just transition away from fossil fuels!

    Sunrise is a movement to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. Nationwide, we’ve rallied support from 22 representatives for a Green New Deal. So far, no reps from AZ have stated their support. We’re here to change that!

    This will be an informal meeting to answer questions and use facebook/twitter to target some of our Reps. We are coordinating our social media work to happen on the same day as a movement of over 1000 people descend on DC to pressure our legislatures, so get ready to feel inspired by national climate justice action on Monday!!!

    We’ll be holding our first organizing meeting on January 13– more info on that to follow!”
