Sunrise Movement

In 2018, the youth-led Sunrise Movement Education Fund popularized the ambitious yet common sense climate program known as the Green New Deal.  MFF Gen 2 funding supports the training of community organizers in five sites across the country, as well as the organization’s response to climate-fueled disasters by promoting community resilience and swift solutions. 

"I joined Sunrise Movement just a few weeks after graduating from college. Volunteering with Sunrise gave me the opportunity to find purpose and meaning in my life as I worked to stop the climate crisis, as I learned new skills and became a leader in the organization and in my Brooklyn community."
