Mission Statement

Rise Above Social Issues Foundation's mission is to address challenging social issues in the lives of young people, such as bullying and discrimination. By enhancing literacy and encouraging self-confidence and knowledge through age-accessible, non-threatening reading materials such as specially created, topical comic books, we strive to stimulate creativity and tolerance in our young students, giving them the tools to become a positive influence on their peers, while overcoming the social issues that face too many of our young people today.
