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 our most important rights and freedoms. Lawyers for Good Government Inc. and RISE When We Fall, two organizations at the forefront of this emerging movement, are now joining forces to host “Rise Above,” a conference designed to coordinate and convert this unprecedented political energy into meaningful results.
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 over time.
