Group 1001 is proud to partner with RISE, a national nonprofit educating and empowering the sports community at all levels to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice, and improve race relations. We share their vision that education and sports have the power to transform communities.
The company has taken an active role in bringing RISE programming to Indianapolis and founded the Group 1001 Fellowship Program.
"We believe the work RISE does is especially important right now, and Group 1001's commitment to proactively push for change sends a powerful message," said RISE CEO Diahann Billings-Burford. "This is a time we can unify the country. Our programs bring together diverse populations, and we're having these conversations on race and social justice with diverse groups. We believe that has the greatest impact, and we firmly believe and what we have seen, especially in our youth programming, is that sports boost these conversations because people are already coming together with a common goal."
RISE recently highlighted Group 1001 for our support. You can read more about the partnership here: Group 1001 Partners with RISE
