#BroSisRising: A Community Celebration

Thursday, April 8, 2021

Thanks to everyone who joined us for #BroSisRising: A Community Celebration, our virtual fundraiser to celebrate our work over the past year, the rise of our new home, and our milestone anniversary – over 25 years of standing with young people to build the future they want to see.

We are thrilled to share that #BroSisRising was a huge success! Hundreds of viewers joined us to celebrate our work and thanks to all of you, we raised over $1.2 million to support the young men and women of The Brotherhood Sister Sol.

We were delighted to have #BroSisRising honoree U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock from Georgia join us and share an inspirational message to all young people along with artist and activist Rosario Dawson, a stalwart supporter of BroSis and co-founder of VotoLatino. Together they emphasized the essential participation of youth leaders in the movement for social justice and the importance of youth not just surviving but thriving.

#BroSisRising also included appearances by BroSis friends Bobby Canavale, Rose Byrne, Carrie Mae Weems, Tamron Hall, Questlove, Kevin Durant, Zora Howard, and The Peace Poets. 

In Conversation With: 

U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock

#BroSisRising Honoree


Former Voices Honoree


Each year, BroSis holds a fundraising event – Voices – in celebration of our youth, our life changing programming, and our commitment to justice. Voices provides a platform for our members to share their personal journeys, often through spoken word performances.

This year, we’ve rebranded with a virtual event – #BroSisRising – that celebrates our work over the past year, the rise of our new home, and our milestone anniversary – over 25 years of standing with young people to build the future they want to see. Celebrate with us – virtually – as we share our stories and celebrate an exciting new chapter: a 20,000 square foot beacon to educate young people, organize for justice, and train educators and organizers.

Join us from the comfort of your home to honor and support our work to challenge inequity and champion opportunity for all.
