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.

The Hope-a-nomics™ guide provides a model of organization to empower ordinary citizens to pen their own civil rights into existence. By gamifying the process of law-making, Rise has innovated hope to democratized power.
