A Rising Up

Helping leaders sustain anti-racism work

Why A Rising Up?

Our Story

We have dedicated our work to end systemic racism in our generation. Every generation is forty years. Right now, there is a growing number of social movements with incredible leaders leading the charge to advance racial equity and justice. At the same time, many leaders are doing the work on empty and are seldom refreshed to lead on overflow. In order to achieve systems-change we need effective leaders who are rested and well. A Rising Up exists to fill the gap of training, resources, community, and wellness to energize leaders, to sustain anti-racism work. 

Rose Francois, Founder and Principal of A Rising Up, created our community through her inspiration from the Haitian Revolution. Rose researched and studied the life of Haitian leader, Toussaint Louverture and birthed A Rising Up.

What People Say

I found the sessions to be challenging in the right ways. It wasn't just about learning about racism and how it affects people, but how anti-racism is a cycle of constant flow: doing the work, taking a break to care for one self, and resuming the work as needed. Putting these things into practice through the framework provided during the sessions made it seem more real, more urgent, and that was helpful to break the seal and build the courage to continue even after the session workshops are over.

Educational, inspiring, and thought-provoking.

This work and the cycle of sustaining anti-racism work is ongoing. There isn't an end in sight because there is always so much to learn about ourselves and the world that we live in. Facing yourself, doing the work and protecting your energy is no easy feat and you can never truly be done. I love this framework because it focuses on the work to undo systems of oppression. Often we hear that the work starts within ourselves and people thinking the work is done because they don't think they are racist or that they contribute to racist work or systems that uphold white supremacy, but this training really helps to paint the picture of what starting with yourself looks like.
