A few weeks ago, I sat down with Amanda Nguyen to talk about her work at Rise. Rise’s mission is to help everyday people pass their first law. To date, Rise has passed 32 laws affecting 85 million people – including the storied Survivor Bill of Rights, which was passed unanimously in a polarized political environment.
Amanda recently announced her new accelerator, Rise Justice Labs, where aspiring changemakers can apply to get $5,000 seed funding and access to a community of lawmakers and advisors.
I hope this informs you more on the accessibility that we all have to the process that represents us. Your elected officials have a duty to hear you out and we have a duty to design a better world.
