WASHINGTON – The D.C. chapter of the Sunrise Movement, one of the leading activist groups on climate change, said Wednesday it would not participate in a rally for voting rights this weekend due to the participation of three liberal Jewish groups it labeled “Zionist organizations.”

The Jewish Council on Public Affairs, the National Council of Jewish Women and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism are all slated to take part in Saturday’s event aimed at championing D.C. statehood and expanding voting rights.
