RISE uses sport as a vehicle for social justice. Through RISE to Vote, we engage athletes, coaches and staff at all levels, educating them on how to vote and why it matters. We equip them with the tools and knowledge to get involved, make a difference and inspire their fans to be civically active.


We offer Voter Registration, Civic Education and Community Engagement Opportunities.

We work with teams, leagues and athletes to leverage the power of sports to deliver a message of civic engagement through digital campaigns, town halls and major sporting events.

We partner with nonpartisan voter registration organizations, as well as state election officials, to provide accurate and effective voter registration sessions for teams, athletes and fans and address the specific needs of a given state.

The RISE to Vote program was a unique opportunity for our players to learn about the importance of being informed. While high profile college student-athletes, they still underestimate the power of their voice toward change in our society, and what better way to reinforce this reality than to not only encourage them to act as part of their civic responsibility, but also encourage others to become informed and engaged citizens.

— Brian Kelly, Notre Dame Head Football Coach
