About RISE

http://swconference.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/logo-730x1401.jpg

RISE is a grassroots collective of social workers and activists in NYC. We create spaces where progressive and radical ideas can be shared to build knowledge, skills and community. We want to inspire social workers to create a world where the need for social work is made obsolete.

Our flagship event is the RISE Conference, an annual interdisciplinary conference where we empower social work students and recent professionals to become effective agents of social change. It focuses on coalition-building, interdisciplinary dialogue, and skill-building to transform institutionalized social problems.
