The Sunrise Movement is a national group of young people and their allies working to educate and engage the public about climate change and a democratic way to address it. The Sunrise Movement was formed in 2018. You can find out more about them and their upcoming events at: at https://www.sunrisemovement.org. The Longmont Sunrise Movement formed initially in response to a national call to action, but recently formulated a city climate emergency resolution, which was adopted by the Longmont City Council in October of 2019.
