About Bay Rising & Bay Rising Action
Bay Rising is a growing alliance of community-led organizations across the Bay Area, anchored by three local alliances and campaigns: Oakland Rising, San Francisco Rising, and Silicon Valley Rising. We are the only regional civic engagement organization that organizes working-class people and people of color as voters in the Bay Area year-round. We believe that our journey towards racial, economic, and environmental justice is a journey for political power. We know this in our bones because political power is about who represents us and the rules that govern us - it’s about our future. We all have the right to decide on our future, no matter who we are, what we look like, or what’s in our wallets. Every day, we organize so that we’ll have what it takes to shift the power back to our communities and become co-creators of our future alongside our elected officials. We will always empower the people who are most marginalized in our Bay Area communities to lead the way for government that centers racial, economic and environmental justice.
