Joe Biden Must Make Climate A Day One Priority

Can you sign the petition to hold Biden accountable to his campaign promise of stopping climate change and creating millions of good jobs? We have to show that millions of people are with us.

Joe Biden is the President-Elect and Inauguration Day is right around the corner. But our work to stop climate change and win a Green New Deal in 2021 is just beginning. 

Sunrise is a movement of young people fighting to stop the climate crisis and create millions of good jobs in the process. We pushed Biden to make bold, Green New Deal-style climate mobilization a central component of his campaign, and then we helped send 3.5 million young people to the polls. Our work paid off—support from young voters, especially young voters of color, skyrocketed. Our generation delivered his margin of victory and helped save our democracy. 

But now, to make sure that Biden’s new administration delivers on his promise, we need to show them RIGHT NOW that millions of people are with us in demanding immediate and aggressive action against climate change. We must build an unprecedented mass movement of the same coalition that came together to deliver Biden’s victory—people of every age, race, and class background who believe in climate, racial, and economic justice. And with record-setting climate disasters and the coronavirus pandemic devastating the country, there’s no time to waste.

We The People won Biden his election. And now, it’s up to us to ensure he takes action.
