RWA Rebrands to RISE

In September 2019 we officially transitioned our organization name from Rockaway Waterfront Alliance(RWA) to the Rockaway Initiative for Sustainability and Equity (RISE).

Over the past year, our Board and staff have worked with Growth for Good on a strategic plan for the future of our organization. Through this work, we felt that the new name better represented both our present and past work with the goal of empowering all generations of Rockaway residents to care for their environment and community through civic engagement and youth programs to advance social equity and the physical wellbeing of our vibrant, coastal community.
