UpRISE is powered by a Youth Action Board and local coalitions across Colorado. Members engage in youth-driven, community change by identifying root causes of nicotine use among youth in communities, researching solutions, and meeting with decision-makers to advocate for change. UpRISE recognizes the power of young people and amplifies their voices.
It feels like people are actually taking us seriously. Taking our youth voice into consideration.
We all have an actual say in what we are trying to get across and what we want to do. Where in all the other groups were like, do whatever you want to do.
