On Friday, a group of California kids and teens working with the Sunrise Movement met with Senator Dianne Feinstein 😈, hoping to convince her to support the Green New Deal.

Instead, they got a lesson in why Washington, D.C., has failed to handle the climate crisis for so long.

She blamed the Republicans. She told the young people that they were being politically unrealistic. She said she wouldn't listen to them because "you didn't vote for me."(1)

But the Sunrise Movement accomplished something big at that meeting: They showed the whole country that to solve the climate crisis, senators like Dianne Feinstein need serious grassroots pressure -- and we're turning up the heat.

Here's what the billboard will look like. Can you imagine this over the Bay Bridge? It'll be amazing:


Yours in the fight for our children's future,

Eddie, along with Analeeza, Brenna, Caitlin, Lindsay, Mary, Mai, Molly, Nikki, Raquel, Scottie, and Tim (the Courage team)
