Do you and your community want accurate information? Engagement? Empowerment? Learn which issues other communities are facing similar to yours? Learn how other communities are approaching challenges?

You tell us your issues. We provide the tech, training and equipment, the experts and the fellow community leaders and residents.

Our Focus:

Content for Change began as Citizens, Rise in 2016 in response to the tragically low voter turnout and civic participation in that election year. We produced educational content and organized dozens of town halls, workshops, and events for over two years partnering with national and local representatives and organizations such as ACLU, SIREN, Climate Reality Project, and PPMM to moderate discussions and inspire action on a range of issues from the climate to gun control to immigration and voter suppression.

We were in the midst of transforming this onto a national scale with virtual town halls” when COVID-19 hit.

Now more than ever, when virtual connections are all we have, the need for a country to unite and discuss issues impacting their community is greater than ever. People are seeking answers and surety and need to feel empowered through whatever action they are able to take based on information from experts and those on the front lines of hot topics, and not just potentially fake news.

IF YOU ARE A COMMUNITY WHO WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE IN A VIRTUAL TOWN HALL, PLEASE CONTACT US AT CITIZENSRISE2017@GMAIL.COM.
