What does it mean to be a memeber of Sunrise?
Nevada County Sunrise is a local hub for a national youth-led movement fighting to avert the climate crisis through politics. Our hub welcomes anyone from ages 13-35 as members, and anyone older or younger as allies. Climate change is a crisis, and the only way we can effectively avoid it is with widespread reform, which requires action from our complacent leaders. Sunrise works to bring people into national and local offices who understand the importance of climate change, as well as asking others to take the necessary actions to avert the crisis we are currently hurtling towards.
As a member of Nevada County Sunrise we invite you to join us at our weekly meetings where we brainstorm solutions for initiatives and meet with influential organizers within the community. Most of the time these meetings are on Zoom, although we occasionally meet in-person.
