Rise Together

Rise Together Leveraging the power of 9 counties to create economic opportunity for all through collective action & redefining what is possible for Bay Area residents.

Rise Together is a coalition of over 200 Bay Area efforts to move families out of poverty and into prosperity. We recognize that there is a huge loss to our society when so many families cannot access economic opportunity. Together we can amplify what is working and redefine what is possible for Bay Area residents. Poverty is Solvable. Equity and Economic Opportunity for All is Possible. And When There is Equity and Economic Opportunity for All, We All Win. Our strategies include strategic communications, capacity building for our partners to increase advocacy efforts, policy advocacy and providing data for decision making.
