In the wake of recent, tragic instances of injustice in the U.S., NSBE has launched an initiative that will help our members and prospective members become more knowledgeable about social justice.
R.I.S.E. is an acronym that stands for “Research and Development, Innovative Thinking, Social Emergence and Excel before the pressure.”
This initiative will involve forums with law enforcement officials, lawyers, judges, etc., a chance to make a difference using technical skills for technological advancements; and opportunities to provide the tools needed to be successful in organizing different platforms. Under the umbrella of NSBE’s Technical OutReach and Community Help (TORCH) program, we expect to see our minoritized brothers and sisters be educated on their constitutional rights, ask the questions that are rarely answered elsewhere, give practical knowledge to apply to specific situations and, most important, be the change we aspire to see.
