As 2020 approaches, we’re building a clear plan to get a new wave of Green New Deal champions into office next year. Today, we’re announcing the first step of that plan:
We’re launching a ten-state field program to elect Green New Deal champions in 2020. In Wisconsin, Michigan, Montana, California, Maine, Georgia, Iowa, New Hampshire, and Colorado, State Directors will lead teams of organizers in campaigns to replace establishment Democrats and vulnerable Republicans with Green New Deal champions in swing districts up and down the ballot.
We’re currently looking for skilled organizers to hire as Sunrise State Directors in Wisconsin, Michigan, Montana, California, Georgia and Maine. Interested? Apply now. Know someone who could make a good candidate? Forward them this application.
In 2020, young people will be the largest bloc of eligible voters in the US.1 That means our generation’s votes will be decisive next year in elections across the country.
