A cohort is a group of people who are around the same age and have similar experiences and concerns.
The #GRassrootsUP Initiative is a dynamic community development, technology, and media venture empowering organizing efforts within the African American Community and with other disparate groups and collaborators in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Through the vibrant use of data, technology, critical conversations, and storytelling, #GRUp centers community-voices on the convergent issues of health, wealth, and economic opportunity.
#GRUp’s mission is to engage the community in social and narrative justice through collaboration, media literacy, and equity stories
#GRUp seeks twenty-five 16-26 year olds who are interested in getting involved, making a difference, and getting paid. As a member of the Cohort, you will be joining us at the ground level and your voice, time, and talents will be a driving force in shaping our movement.
#GRUp envisions a beloved community that is organized around respect for diverse cultures, authentic engagement, and a voice that is equitable and fair for all.
Join the movement.
