Mission & Vision

Three workshop attendees laughing together


Together, we can create a more equitable Washington where every community can realize its fullest potential.


Communities Rise fosters movements to build power in communities impacted by systemic oppression. To create an equitable system, we pursue cross-sector collaboration, and provide capacity building and legal services for community organizations and small businesses.
