Get Involved

Dr King BannerSince 2008, countless families that have had their lives turned upside down by homicide have received needed support through Rise Up Rochester, Incorporated programs like its monthly Support Group and annual Service of Remembrance. Hundreds of classrooms have learned how to prevent violence in their neighborhoods and thousand of students have taken a stand against violence through the Stop the Violence Billboard Contest.
