The 3rd Annual RISE Conference happened on October 22, 2011. The conference is our biggest community-building effort: a space where progressive and radical ideas, knowledge, and skills are shared. Thank you to everyone in our community who attended and made it another inspiring day of building a more liberated world through radical community.

You can check out the sessions and work shop descriptions from the 2011 conference here!

This is a must attend conference and it would help to empower social workers world-wide.

Is it possible for there to be a space at RISE for women of color to network and share opportunities to work together across our different campuses?

RISE - June 30, 2010

This is a great suggestion, Anisah! I will share it with our organizing team.

If you have specific suggestions about what this should look like or how it could be structured, please email info@riseconference.org.

I’d love to hear more about your thoughts about what kind of space would be most useful.
