The Most Successful Legislative Reform Movement in U.S. History
Rise’s theory of change is built on the idea that hope is contagious. Rise began in 2014 as an effort to bring equality to sexual assault survivors across the country and around the world. Along the way, it became something even bigger: a model for how anyone can drive democracy, scale hope, and create change.
Previously, no organization provided comprehensive social movement acceleration to assist activists in establishing a campaign, equipping boots on the ground with tools, gamifying the legislative process and coaching grassroots efforts as they discover their voice. Until now.
Hope is contagious.
