Are you ready to get Fossil Fuel Money out of Massachusetts politics?
This past month, Sunrise Boston members contacted dozens of MA candidates to ask them to take the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge -- and we're already seeing results -60+ have signed! We're continuing this work, by specifically focusing on incumbent races.
At this meeting, we're going to focus our campaign on getting Elizabeth Warren and the Boston City Councillors' to sign. We'll hangout out, eat food, plan some fun outreach events and get some candidate meetings with our key targets on the books.
It's going to be awesome! Hope to see you there!
**Please bring a laptop with you if you have one**

MORE ON SUNRISE'S NO FOSSIL FUEL MONEY CAMPAIGN:
Everyone can see that the climate is changing. Home doesn’t feel like home anymore. We face the frightening reality that climate change will irreversibly transform our world within our lifetimes. Solutions to stop climate change are ready to go, and they’ll create millions of jobs.
But this brighter future is being held hostage by a greedy handful of wealthy oil and gas executives. They will stop at nothing to ensure they continue to profit off the main culprit of climate change: fossil fuels. They lie to the public, buy off politicians of both parties with campaign contributions to stall progress ($260 million spent in the 2016 election cycle!) and secure massive giveaways for themselves.
In 2018, politicians across the country are running for office, and they’ll be courting young peoples’ votes. This is our time to say: No. More. Fossil. Fuel. Money.
Together, we can make 2018 the year when no politician can seriously claim to care about our generation’s future and still take money from fossil fuel executives, their front-groups, or lobbyists.
This year, Sunrise’s army of young people will #ShineALight on the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives at campaign events, gather thousands of signatures from constituents, and get hundreds of candidates signed onto the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge.
We’ll throw our weight behind the candidates who share our values, and elect a new generation of leaders to spearhead one of the biggest government projects in history — a rapid transition to a 100% renewable energy economy that leaves no one behind.
