RISE Colorado's approach rests on our mission to educate, engage, and empower families.

We believe education precedes empowerment and action. To that end, we educate families to bridge the lack of access to information. Through our workshops families gain the aspirational and tangible tools to understand educational inequity and navigate the school system.

Families create and lead school coalitions that set the agenda to organize around issues that impact student achievement. They create the change they want to see and increase their power to act on behalf of themselves and their students.

Empowerment starts on day one. We develop families to become leaders that have a voice, and take action. RISE Colorado families will become key decision makers, vital to leading change in our public school system. Ultimately, families will ensure students most impacted by educational inequity make it to and through college.

About the Co-CEOs

Milagros Barsallo, and Veronica Palmer have grown up and worked in Colorado. Our identities as women of color plays a critical role in how we view the world and why we are creating RISE. We understand the importance of elevating the voices of low income communities and communities of color so families of students can pursue the changes they believe will transform our public schools.

We feel it is our responsibility to form an organization that will do just this. We welcome support and resources from
