Contact: [email protected]
Together We Rise's mission is to exemplify solidarity, provide safe havens and foster open communication on diversity, equality, and respect for all. 'Together We Rise' is a new group of like-minded individuals from the Lower Connecticut River Valley who believe that 'no one is free while others are oppressed.' We aim to exemplify solidarity and to work as peaceful advocates for justice. Using tools of open-communication, art, personal testimony, community building, political advocacy, and education we work to address issues of social, economic and environmental justice at the local, state and national levels. Our ultimate goal is to build and strengthen an engaged and egalitarian community, with respect towards all humanity.
