Stand with Boston's Rising Class

Stand with Boston's Rising Class

    1. Sponsored by

      Boston Rising

Everyone deserves the chance to succeed.

But too many members of Boston’s communities lack even the basic steps to success: a decent education, a shot at a good job and quality social connections.

That’s why Boston Rising launched RisingClass.org to share videos and stories of individual success in Boston’s communities and help foster the networks that are vital to rising. These stories show that all people are living their own rising story every day and RisingClass.org provides a platform for building the social networks that are necessary for each individual’s success.

But we need your help to make RisingClass.org a success.

Sign the petition now if you stand with Boston Rising and believe we can all rise together, as a community and as a city.

By signing our Change.org petition you’ll help us highlight the strength of so many individuals who have worked hard to achieve their version of success, and help us connect individuals to the professional and networking tools they need to succeed.

Do you believe everyone in Boston deserves a chance at success? Sign the petition now and take a moment to visit RisingClass.org to watch the videos or add your own story of rising.

      This is important to me because I am a person who is in the process of reaching my goals and I want to support people who have had similar or worse circumstances than myself. This is a reflection of my struggle and success.

      Our family members who live in Boston and its neighborhoods work so hard every day to make their community strong - we must support them and plan for greatness.

      Because everyone was born with a unique and beautiful purpose, and should have the opportunity to realize it.

      I'm sick of not being able to get ahead in life because someone else has more little pieces of green paper than I do.
