We Are Running For Political Office
It’s time to take over. From the beginning, Sunrise set out to elect a new generation of leaders who will fight to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process.
Leaders in our movement have already stepped up to run for office but as young, 1st time candidates often taking on entrenched politicians, it can be hard to win. But if we fail to elect Green New Deal champions at every level of government, climate change and injustice will accelerate. That’s why we’re launching a candidate recruitment program to support more young leaders to take this plunge.
We’re currently recruiting a diverse, working-class crew of Sunrise leaders who have a bold vision to transform our economy and democracy to run for local or state office on a Green New Deal in 2021 or 2022.
Applications for folks interested in running in 2021 is now closed, applications for folks interested in running in 2022 are being accepted on a rolling basis.
