Youth climate activists with the Sunrise Movement slept outside California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein’s office in Los Angeles on Tuesday night and say they aren’t leaving until she meets their demands.
Sunrise Movement LA describes itself as an organization of “young people fighting for a Green New Deal, a livable future, and good sustainable jobs for all Angelenos.” It is affiliated with other activist groups in the region that organize against law enforcement agencies and advocate for the homeless population.

FOX News reported that the group wants an infrastructure bill making its way through Congress to “include $10 trillion in climate spending over the next 10 years and a government-funded ‘Civilian Climate Corps.’” The Sunrise Movement describes CCC as “a visionary policy that would create a government jobs program putting a new generation of Americans to work combatting the climate crisis.” Organizers are also demanding a meeting with Feinstein,
