Women on the Rise was established as a nurturing space dedicated to empowering formerly incarcerated and justice-impacted women. We recognize that to effectively combat mass incarceration, it's imperative to center the voices of those most affected. Our commitment lies in prioritizing the voices of individuals who have long been marginalized and offering a platform for genuine growth and communal well-being.


We learn from political experiences, develop our leadership skills, and expand our network to strengthen our movement. Through community organizing and supportive services, we are building a strong foundation of women with the skills and experience needed to lead and succeed in campaigns. Women on the Rise imagines a world where women, families, and communities thrive, not just get by. Together, we will educate, heal, and empower ourselves, each other, and our communities as we fight for justice and dignity.
