Green Sunday (4/12): The Sunrise Movement: How we respond in moments of crisis.

Sunrise is a 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 the US, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and well being of all people. This presentation will cover our approach to the Green New Deal, as well as our mobilization to the covid crisis and beyond. 

Karaline Bridgeford has been with the Sunrise Bay Area hub for over a year and  serves on the solidarity and presentations teams. She got her start in organizing as an undergrad student with the university fossil fuel divestment movement and now works in City government. 
Itxaso Garay is originally from Barcelona but has lived all over the US (Florida, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, California, etc) since she was 7, and she currently calls Oakland home. She had the privilege of growing up on the ocean and the beach in all of the places she has lived; rising oceans encroaching on her tiny town in Rhode Island and the threat of hurricanes in Florida was her first exposures to the threat of climate change and motivation to mediate these issues. Since the shelter in place order happened she has been comforted by calls from old friends and trying out yoga; her partner has been baking a lot and she have been lucky enough to be the taste tester for his creations. 
Elizabeth Villano is a native of Illinois and grew up swimming in Lake Michigan. As much as she misses the fresh water, she’s already acclimatized to the winters out here so isn’t positive she can ever leave. She’s been with Sunrise Bay Area for about a year, serving as the presentations coordinator, and with action planning for different events.
