Event description
Hear from Katie McChesney co-founder of the Sunrise Movement about how a youth led movement put climate and economic justice on the US map.

About this Event

Join us to hear from Katie McChesney co-founder of the Sunrise Movement, about how a youth led movement put climate and economic justice at the top of the US political agenda.

This will be a chance to talk about big ideas and the secret sauce that powers youth activism.

We'll learn from Katie about what's happening in the states, where the Green New Deal came from and how similar justice based campaigns might kick off here.

We'll put on some light refreshments, but you're welcome to join us at the pub after.

The Sunrise Movement is leading the charge for a Green New Deal in America. Since their sit-in at Nancy Pelosi’s office launched the Green New Deal onto the US and global agenda, the Sunrise Movement have been training hundreds of new leaders, supporting new local hubs and building power for the long term to win transformational change in America.

Previously Katie was a leader in the fossil fuel divestment movement, spending 6 years at 350.org training and supporting divestment organisers across America.

YOUNG Campaigns is a youth economic justice campaigning organisation. We support young people to win campaigns for a fairer future.

This event is open to people of all ages but we particularly encourage young people (broadly under 35) to attend and speak up.

This event takes place on the stolen land and we pay respects to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded.

The venue is wheel chair friendly but please DM us about any accessibility concerns.
