America Rising - A gritty image of the American flag

America Rising

In the spring of 2020, Americans are navigating an unprecedented period of hardship and upheaval. As the global pandemic persists, protests against racial injustice have spread across this nation. Concerned citizens of all stripes are expressing solidarity and heeding the call to action. As much as this is an era of intense uncertainty, it is also a time for great hope.

The purpose of this page is to provide ELEVATION readers with useful resources related to constructive and peaceful ways to contribute to the pursuit of justice, unity, progress, and prosperity in the United States.

Starting with Criminal Justice Reform, AMERICA RISING will continually aggregate information on topics including Community Empowerment, Democracy, Economic Development, Social Unity, Mental Health, and more.

If you have questions or would like to submit ideas to ELEVATION or contribute to our efforts in any way, please contact us here.
