A World Seeking Racial Equality

In the face of ongoing violence and systemic racism, our society is desperately seeking ways to address racial inequality and honor the memory of those who have suffered at the hands of injustice. The challenge we face is expressing our communal grief and rising up in action that sparks change.

Envision a Just and Inclusive Future

As we come together to remember the stories of resistance and celebrate the lives lost, we build a foundation for achieving racial equity. Through joint efforts in commemoration, we

A Living Memorial for Unity and Justice

Rise & Remember provides a space for individuals and organizations to unite, remember, and stand together with victims and their families in the ongoing fight against racial injustice. Our platform offers opportunities for all to contribute to a global movement for racial justice and create tangible change.

We Share Your Vision for Equity

At Rise & Remember, we understand the pain and outrage that racial injustice inflicts on communities. We became a global memorial through the uprising, and the family of George Floyd chose to govern and care for this memorial with the community. Our team is committed to fostering dialogue, sharing stories of resistance, and offering space for a collective expression of sorrow and a path for people to come together to support racial justice and remember victims of injustice.

Rise & Remember is the heart and soul of our community! Every time I’ve partnered with the organization—whether for events, pilgrimages for visitors from around the world, or in maintaining the people’s memorial at 38th and Chicago—their approach is always community-minded, anti-racist, and takes into thoughtful consideration the nuances of our complex and diverse neighborhood.

Community Needs Community

George Floyd Square has been such a haven for young people like myself, to creatively express themselves and be in a safe space for abolition. It’s become a shelter, garden, memorial, and really embodies what community looks like. I’m so grateful to experience a memorial as a young person TODAY, and not have to wait for an injustice to be memorialized decades AFTER the tragedy, like so many others before George Floyd.
