Approximately 300 people showed up to the Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County’s “Rise Together” coalition launch party Friday night, many gathering for the first time with friends they could only see via Zoom during the early stages of the pandemic.

Rise Together, explained the 17 leaders of color and four Community Foundation staff members that make up the committee, convened mid-2020 in the wake of the murder of George Floyd and the disproportionate effect COVID-19 was having on minorities.

The goals of Rise Together are to increase upward economic mobility, amplify, value, celebrate and preserve people of color's stories, arts, culture and community events. The effort seeks policy change to better deliver essential services, address barriers and build community capacity to fight racial disparities. The goal is amplify giving and sustained funding for communities of color.
