Sunrise Movement No Excuses protest on Capitol Hill, Washington DC Offices visited Hakeem Jeffries and Steny Hoyer.COll

We encourage you to extend your engagement with Sustainable Wellesley by sponsoring a bright Wellesley College student named Emily LaShelle who is dedicated to solving the climate crisis with her peers at Sunrise Movement. Let her carry our energy and voices to fight for a better future and run campaigns pushing for the Green New Deal.

The Sunrise Movement is a group of young people who have dedicated their lives to solving the climate crisis. Since the election, they have played a huge part in pushing forward our collective futures through the Green New Deal Campaign.

– They organized over 250 office visits to our Representatives
– Made thousands of phone calls and tweets
– And brought 1,000 young people to DC and 300 to San Francisco to call on Democratic Leadership to back Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Select Committee for a Green New Deal.

Their bold actions have earned thousands of news stories, moved dozens of Representatives to back the Select Committee, and inspired tens of thousands of people into the movement. Most of those successes have been at the hands of committed volunteers who are eager to keep the momentum going into 2019.

Emily is one of those incredible organizers. Please consider sponsoring this smart, motivated, local college woman to do her work with Sunrise throughout the spring. Simply click here. In total she is aiming for $4,800, which will cover her 6-month stay with the program. Every month, funds will cover:

Housing + Utilities: $450
Food $150
Campaign Materials: $75
Personal Expenses: $100
Program Coordination: $125

Thank you for your consideration.
