Join the Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s (PEEC) Young Adult Advisory Group on Sunday, Jan. 10 at 4 p.m. to learn about the local chapter of the Sunrise Movement. Zoe Hemez from the Sunrise Movement of Northern New Mexico will give a brief overview of the Sunrise Movement’s mission and share some examples of work that has been done by the Northern New Mexico chapter at this event. After this introduction, she will take questions from participants, discuss how local young adults can get involved and brainstorm project ideas with the group.
Hemez grew up in Los Alamos and graduated from Los Alamos High School in 2018. She has been a longtime climate activist in New Mexico and other areas of the United States. She currently attends Western Washington University in Bellingham, Wash., where she is studying mathematics and energy science.
The Sunrise Movement is a nationwide, youth-led climate movement advocating for climate justice and a Green New Deal.
This event is the second program that PEEC’s Young Adult Advisory Group has hosted. The group is made up of young people ages 16 – 25 in Northern New Mexico that are interested in getting more involved with PEEC, guiding the organization’s programming and connecting other young adults with nature. If you would like to get involved in the group, contact Christa Tyson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
