Trainings Director | Sunrise Movement
Aru began organizing as a freshman in college, when she first began to see the devastating effects of the climate crisis. In 2017, after her freshman year, she joined Sunrise, a movement of young people building a youth army to end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel billionaires on our politics and pass a Green New Deal. Over the past few months alone, Sunrise has transformed the conversation around climate change and pushed the Green New Deal into the national arena.
Aru currently serves as Sunrise’s Trainings Director, where she organizes the training of thousands of young volunteers to run campaigns for the Green New Deal across the country. In her free time, Aru can be found drawing, reading, or on the nearest swingset.
