Rise Together is a new 501(c)4 looking to up-end politics as usual in the city of Los Angeles, by leveraging the long dormant power of the public narrative. The organization seeks to use innovative and cost-effective consumer marketing to re-engage and re-invest the general public in advance of the 2022 elections, to convince them that progress is possible, and it comes from the middle. And so goes the public, so goes the city: with that change, we can shift the ground under campaigns, inspire and educate the public, and protect the city from extremism. We can ensure that 2022 is an election focused on the people's concerns, and hold officials and candidates accountable. 

We are a growing team that takes pride in building an organizational culture rooted in trust, collaboration, and learning, all with an established practice of using common sense built on common ground throughout all of our work. We are committed to saving this city with fact based solutions, while we strive to impact LA’s political and civic landscape— making sure we have a great time along the way. We value open communication and a healthy work/life balance.
