Rise Up News is a local nonprofit organization that publishes a newspaper, RISE (Reenter Into Society Empowered) that provides local reentry and social service resources to currently incarcerated individuals in local jail facilities. RISE launched in 2017 as a proof-of-concept project when founder Tracy Brumfield was awarded the People’s Liberty Haile Fellowship award. RISE is the only newspaper in the country for a county jail audience and is currently distributed in 5 local correctional facilities. Along with local resource listings, RISE also includes first person essays from readers and relevant and timely articles to help individuals navigate life post release.
