Grassroots Democratic Programming for Community Activation

Project partners:

Southeast Uplift

Project Location:

Portland, OR


Project Description:

We All Rise is partnered with Southeast Uplift to recruit for and deliver a nine week course for young, BIPOC Portlanders on topics related to leadership, equity, and land use. BIPOC individuals are currently underrepresented in the public sphere. This course serves as an entry point for individuals from underestimated communities to learn about topics generally reserved for university students. Ultimately, this course will help students become civically engaged and provide them with the tools they need to become leaders in their local communities. 



We All Rise contributed the following deliverables: 

  • Recruitment for the program

  • A nine-week course

  • Facilitation of a community project of the student’s choosing
