Empowering Community Through Connection & Amplifying Social Justice Movements
About & Mission
RISEBRIDGE is a non-profit run by action-oriented peers and professionals mandated to provide a safe and culturally-anchored low-barrier space, open 7 days a week, to advance the mental health, resilience and wellbeing of our community while amplifying social justice movements and elevating harm reduction initiatives.
BLACK LIVES MATTER EVERY CHILD MATTERS
The Rise Bridge Project acknowledges that we are guests on the unceded and ancestral territories of the Snuneymuxw, Stz’uminus, Snaw'naw'as, and Kwakwaka’wakw first nations, allowing us to connect with communities in BC’s Interior, Lower Mainland, Central & Northern Vancouver Island. We are grateful for their care and wisdom of this land. The Rise Bridge Project is committed to working towards reconciliation and the ongoing process of decolonization as we continue our work in the community.
We operate from a feminist perspective, offering client centered, not for profit, peer-led programming that is committed to remaining low barrier, safe and welcoming for all races, religions, authenticities and sexualities, LGBTQ+, while actively participating in current social justice events.

To take direct action, you may call your provincial leadership to fulfill the commitments they have made to enhance the lives, and protect the rights, of groups such as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, individuals with neurodiversity, those with concurrent disorders, those experiencing economic marginalization, or those involved in the opioid epidemic. Reviewing the NDP's current commitments gives a good basis by which to inform an email or letter to voice concern.
