The RISE Initiative

PEP Launches the RISE Initiative
The Pro-Choice Public Education Project (PEP) is dedicated to building an inclusive reproductive justice movement by raising the voices of young women, transgender, and gender non-conforming young people. The RISE Initiative will bring together qualitative research, leadership development, and movement-building strategies to increase the visibility and engagement of young people around reproductive justice issues.

RISE Initiative Timeline
The Rise Initiative begins in Fall 2009 with focus groups around the country. In 2010, we'll be working with Alliance partners on leadership development and organizing efforts and attending the United States Social Forum in Detroit.
