THE RISE PROJECT
The RISE Project was born after our first event, Rolling Into Washington, for the Women's March on Washington.
We saw the need and want for many people to show their support for the march in Washington DC... they just couldn't afford to go.
That shouldn't happen.
WE ALL HAVE A VOICE, AND IT'S IMPORTANT THAT THOSE VOICES ARE HEARD.
RISE Travel experiences allow you to not only get the opportunity to show up and have your voice heard at marches and rallies.... participants learn how to be better advocates. We even have programs for teens and young adults!
Our workshops connect participants with the resources to grow in their love of advocacy, find their voice, stay safe and become more involved in government.
In fact, after participating in a RISE Travel event, some women have even made the decision (and connections) to run for a public office!
So, what RISE Travel provides is important and impactful. We don't want the price to hinder involvement.
The RISE Project provides scholarships to help send people to marches and rallies in Washington DC and around the country!
The RISE Project will also keep costs low for workshops and speakers to go into rural areas, schools and groups/organizations locally and nationally.
We have recently been approved by the State of Ohio to file as a non-profit (The RISE Project), but we have a little bit to go before we complete that status. (stay tuned!)
