About Us:

We lobby our reps to support vital legislation and advocate for our future, campaign for climate champions, organize actions and rallies to build community, demand change, and grow our base, and put on many trainings to teach people about Sunrise art and strategy and help them find their place in the movement.

Some of the things we’ve accomplished are

  • Successfully campaigning for climate champion Senator Ed Markey

  • 6 trainings in 2020, on topics from MA politics to orientations to action art. 

  • Art build to make merch and signs, in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement

  • Mobilization for the Act On Mass Transparency campaign in the State House

  • Collaborated with orgs like For The People Boston and Extinction Rebellion on actions and fundraisers

  • We sent postcards, phonebanked, and rose to the challenge of saving our democracy, hosting a weekend of action before the election, where we heard from inspiring speakers and held a banner drop, all to demand that we “Count Every Vote”. 

  • Even through quarantine, building community and finding moments of joy with games, events, and storytelling!

There is a place for anyone in Sunrise Arlington, although our members and leaders are youth (under 35). We have a wide variety of teams and initiatives to get involved in: Art, Campaigns/Actions, Outreach, Trainings, Communications, and Coalitions/Partnerships. You don’t need any experience to join, and will join a community of welcoming and dedicated youth from high school to college and beyond. Sign up here and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can to get you plugged in!
