Sunrise Movement Dallas

Outstanding New Activist Organization:
Sunrise Movement Dallas


Sunrise is a youth-led movement to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. Sunrise Movement Dallas is mobilizing in the DFW area to make climate change an urgent priority, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel money, and stand up for the health and well-being of all people.

They are connected to the national movement of ordinary people scared about the climate crisis and what it means for the people and places they love. Climate change is already affecting Texas residents and it’s only getting worse!

Public opinion is already with Sunrise, and members of Sunrise Dallas believe that we can all come together to create the political will to change the trajectory of our future…and the Green New Deal is key to that change.

Currently, the DFW-area hub is based in Northern Dallas with Southern Dallas, Fort Worth, and suburban hubs planned for the future.
