An extraordinary groundswell...
For millions of Americans, election night 2016 was a call to action. The result? An extraordinary groundswell of political energy. On social media, on university campuses, in company break rooms and at community events, people gathered, shared ideas, and worked together to figure out how best to protect the rights and freedoms that were suddenly in jeopardy. RISE When We Fall and Lawyers for Good Government, two organizations at the forefront of this emerging movement, are now joining forces to coordinate and convert this political energy into meaningful results.
Against tyranny and oppression...
The American people deserve a government that works; a government that protects and defends all of its people against injustice and oppression. We must ensure that the individuals running our government are committed to civil rights, equality, and justice. We must ensure that our government’s actions are aligned with the nation’s prosperity. And we must ensure that as a nation, we treat all people with dignity. The “Rise Above” conference will unite and empower activists, motivated volunteers, policy experts, lawyers, and political leaders who are in a position to further these objectives in the months and years to come.
A different kind of inauguration...
This conference represents a different kind of inauguration - the beginning of a united movement launched in the wake of the 2016 election and driven by our collective desire for equality, justice, freedom, and a government that works. We will provide the framework, inspiration, direction, information, and connections required to fight and win these battles in the months and years ahead. We will continue to deliver calls to action through ongoing, two-way communication, and share our challenges and successes as we work to protect the rights we hold most dear. This is our commitment to conference attendees, to sponsors, to partners, and to the American people.
