A New Magazine for Parents With CPS Involvement
Rise is a magazine written by and for parents who have been involved with New York City's child welfare system. Its mission is to provide parents with true stories about the system's role in families' lives and information that will help parents advocate for themselves and their children.
Most of the stories were written by participants in a writing group run by the Child Welfare Organizing Project (CWOP) and Represent magazine. CWOP is an advocacy program that teaches parents about their rights.
