we need to work together
The Rise Up movement is a coalition of like-minded voices throughout the Midwest. We aim to bring together stakeholders by providing thoroughly-supported justifications for implementing a variety of clean energy policies throughout the region. There are a myriad of ways to engage with Rise Up and we encourage you to join and work alongside us to form a strong economy powered by clean energy.

Rise Up Midwest! partners represent a coalition of organizations, jurisdictions, businesses, and other institutions across the Midwest who have joined our call to action by signing on to our belief statements. Partnership is available to all institutions, including Rise Up Sponsors, Promotional Partners, and MREA Business Members, as well as institutions that are unable to support this movement financially.
