Rose Strauss

Rose Strauss is an UCSB Environmental Studies student and climate change activist working to start a local hub of the Sunrise Movement, an organization building an army of young people to make climate change an urgent priority across America. 


On July 18, 2018, Rose gained notoriety in an exchange with Republican Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner, who called her “young and naïve” after she asked him about $200,000 in fossil fuel campaign contributions. Videos of the exchange went viral with the hashtag #YoungAndNaive, and Teen Vogue published an editorial by Ms. Strauss in which she vowed that “young and naïve” voters like herself would be promoting the ouster of politicians who they believe aren’t working for their generation.
