A left-wing youth climate activist group is being accused of racism and tokenization by some of its minority members. The Sunrise Movement made a name for itself after the group protested against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in 2018. But while they ostensibly supported diversity in the climate change movement, some members said behind the scenes they were ignoring and tokenizing them.
Buzzfeed News said it obtained internal letters and memos signed by at least 100 activists who accused the group of mismanagement and a lack of diversity.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills.

One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
