RISE Now is a non-profit organization committed to bringing people together through community building events, projects and our publication. We aim to empower individuals as they find ways to take action in service of others and the environment. Recognizing that human connections and relationships are what motivate people to take action, we are committed to gathering people together to move the work ahead.
We are a grassroots volunteer organization, formed in 2012 as a vehicle to break the inertia often experienced and seen throughout our culture when faced with the complex global challenges we see today. RISE Now was created to join the many organizations already at work and to do our small part to build lasting solutions. We believe it will not be a strong leader or government that will bring real lasting change, but a multitude of responsible individuals taking action in their own communities.
