who we are

About Rising Advocates

Welcome to Rising Advocates, an educational advocacy group dedicated to empowering young minds through the transformative power of storytelling. We believe literary fiction offers a unique platform to examine real-world issues like democracy, peace, and social responsibility.

At Rising Advocates, we understand the importance of integrating peace education within Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) curricula. Through our stories, we aim to help our young readers take the first steps in becoming socially aware community leaders.

Respect For Children’s Views

Last Word Teaching future generations skills to recognize their rights, raise their voices against acts of exploitation and heighten both their personal autonomy and greater participation in civic society.

Building a Better Tomorrow

Last Word A free society cannot remain free indefinitely if it fails to respect the myriad shades of people & opinion within & without its borders.“Care for children & you care for the world.”

Social Justice Education

The January 2023 murder of Tyre Nichols and the collective societal reckoning we have all experienced, brings Rising Advocates back to why our social platform was created.

Since moving from New York to California, Moraline has been pushing against a hot dry wind whenever trouble happens. But a chance encounter with a mysterious Lakota spirit puts Moraline on the path toward understanding the power she holds in fighting injustice.

She feels helpless by herself, but she starts to gain new friendships with Serenity, a girl mourning the loss of her mother, Amani, an immigrant from the Congo, and Edmundo, a boy of Mexican heritage struggling with the injustices of child labor. Together, they face some of the bigges tissues of their time head-on.
