#RiseUp is a grassroots movement in the United States that encourages black LGBTQ young adults, organizations and their allies to come up with creative, urban, intellectual and socially forward ideas to address issues that effect them. Live events and workshops are held across the country that prepare young adults to be independent thinkers and come up with radical ideas that may effect change. Those in attendance are given priority to apply for seed grants to bring those ideas to life during National Black LGBTQ Youth Month in 2016.

Didn’t attend one of our live events but still have a great idea we should fund for National Black LGBTQ Youth Month in 2016! Apply anyway and you may be invited to attend a webinar so that we can fund your idea!
