How to Write and Pass Your Own Law

Date TBA

Rise has flipped the power dynamic to reinvent lobbying. We are leaders from the Stop Asian Hate, #MeToo, Women’s March, and March for Our Lives movements who have trained hundreds of organizers to go on to pass 55 laws impacting more than 100 million people. Our accelerator program, Rise Justice Labs, compresses several years’ worth of learning into a 12-week accelerator program, teaching campaigners to research and draft a bill, craft a story to make the case for change, connect with lawmakers and other key stakeholders, and construct a community of supporters to ultimately pass legislation. In this discussion we’ll share case studies and our formula for success so you can write and pass your own law for your community.
