Who We Are
Sunrise Northampton is a 100% grassroots organization affiliated with the national Sunrise Movement. In the past year, we hosted a Green New Deal Town Hall, held an action at the August Democratic National Committee meeting where the DNC unanimously passed a resolution supporting a climate debate, planned the May climate strikes in front of Northampton’s city hall, helped to bring 13 buses from Western Mass to the September 20th Climate Strike in Boston, created and helped pass a Northampton Green New Deal resolution in City Council, hosted watch parties for the presidential debates, and helped to organize the December 2019 Western Massachusetts Climate Strike in Springfield.
We meet twice monthly to work towards a sustainable future. We are While all are welcome to attend our meetings, as with our parent organization voting is restricted to people under the age of 35.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or ways you feel you can contribute, let us know. (Note: Sunrise is a youth-led organization, and voting members must be under 35.)
