When we joined Van Jones and Roc Nation on the We Rise Tour, our intention was to create something bigger than a series of events - the tour was an opportunity for us to connect in person, celebrate and grieve, learn from one another and figure out how to take the country forward, together. The tour was just one step in a much longer path.

We Rise Forums are volunteer-led mass meetings designed to connect people to local action and build a stronger community for everyone. There are a lot of great organizing efforts in our communities. There are also a lot of people looking to get involved. At a We Rise Forum, we can make these connections.
The goal is to connect, collaborate and find common ground so we can work together towards a stronger community for everyone. At the forum, you'll meet like-minded people, and experience the energy and camaraderie of being in one place together. You don't want to miss it!
It's easy to watch from the sidelines, but this is the time to stand up and find hope in raising our voices together. Share this link and invite anyone you know! Let's bring as many people together as possible in solidarity and create a welcome space our community desperately needs right now.
