CHICAGO, Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a dark day when America's greatness is called into question, let alone forgotten. We've sent a man to the moon, led the world's best innovations, influenced whole genres of music, and the list goes on. So instead of succumbing to the fire and brimstone talk about how our country needs to be saved or made great again, why not recognize the incredible successes by participating in the RISE Movement's Love Letters to America campaign this Valentine's Day.
Please visit www.loveyouamerica.com and write a brief letter detailing what you love most about the USA. Letters can be signed or anonymous and will be delivered to Congress on Friday, February 17th to remind embattled members remember what they are fighting for during these next four years.
"This is a very tough time and I see a lot of people upset at our country—and themselves—right now," explains Genevieve Thiers, co-founder of RISE. "We've got leadership that does not reflect the majority of voters, and who is presenting a view of the country that—regardless of current challenges--most of us don't share. Let's show some love for America."
"I'm sending one because it helps me stay positive around the current situation," states Dan Ratner, CTO for RISE. "It's a way to express how appreciative we are for our country, and to continue to use our voices and stand up for what's right."
Love Letters to America is only up this week, so write your letter now! Next week, RISE will provide video of the letters being delivered. To see RISE bulletins and watch letters being made, sign up at www.risemvmt.org as a volunteer today.
Headquartered in Chicago, RISE has over 10,000 supporters worldwide. RISE is a movement dedicated to getting non-voters back to the polls. Politics has become very removed from the everyday American. Our goal is to use a galvanized base to engage those who don't feel like they have a voice. Our RISE Report is providing education on what happened in the last election; our RISE Dashboard is coordinating those that want to act; and our RISE Groups are allowing engaged voters on the ground to reach out to others and help their voices be heard. Please join us today, and help the voices of every American RISE.
