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 Hopeanomics™ organizing curriculum serves as the blueprint to drive democracy and scale hope that can easily be applied to other social issues, empowering ordinary citizens to pen their own civil rights into existence. By gamifying the process of law-making, Rise has innovated hope and democratized power.
Currently, no organization provides 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.
