Office Takeover: Rep Dingell

Date: 
Tue, Nov 26, 2019 - 3:00pm to 6:00pm

City:

Sunrise Ann Arbor has been organizing for 10 months to ask Rep Dingell a simple question: will she back the Green New Deal, yes or no?

Last Friday, 40+ young people arrived at her Ypsilanti office, prepared to spend the night, even weeks, until Rep. Dingell would give us a clear answer. Instead of getting answers, 3 young constituents were arrested.

We came back Monday, November 25th, because the climate crisis is getting worse and we deserve answers. We found the office closed - for the week. The Dearborn office, however, is open.

Climate Strike Art Build

Date: 
Tue, Dec 3, 2019 - 6:30pm to 9:30pm

City:

In preparation for the Climate Strike we will be hosting an art build during our meeting time. As Sunrisers, we know that visually compelling, narratively clear, and moving actions -- like our sit in in Pelosi's office -- is part of how we put the Green New Deal on the map and grow our movement. An art build is where we create signs, banners, etc. to amplify our message. And it’s a time to get creative and have fun!
Join us Tuesday, December 3rd @ 6:30-9:30 PM at the Fledge

On December 6th, people across America will join a national #ClimateStrike to take the September strike’s momentum to our elected officials’ doorsteps.

When we striked in September, many politicians shared nice words of encouragement. But we need more than just kind words--we need clear commitments to action.
