RaisingVoicesUSA is an action-oriented network of community members who share information, mobilize resources, and provide a voice for our common interests and for marginalized groups. Our goal is to engage and empower community members toward positive, informed action that upholds democratic values and principles of social justice. We strive to be an affirmative and unifying force in the face of increasing divisiveness, and to create a positive example for our youth and the greater community.
Who We Are
RaisingVoicesUSA is a grassroots, Long Island, New York-based community organization formed in the days after the November, 2016 presidential election. With increasing concerns about the preservation of fundamental American freedoms and hard-fought progress toward social justice, we are concerned individuals banding together toward the common goals that unite us. Our leadership team includes community organizers, lawyers, journalists, writers, artists, and engineers, as well as marketing, communications, and finance professionals. More importantly, we are friends, moms, dads, grandparents, and young adults. We are sharing our time and expertise in order to lead informed, strategic initiatives that will maximize our group’s impact.
