8th June

Infographic Infographic

Over 15million people – primarily the homeless, the under 25s and the economically dispossessed – didn’t vote in the last election, which outnumbered the supporters of every single party in 2015. Only 43% of people under 25 voted while 78% of over 65s did. Together we can change elections and make sure politicians listen.

THEY DON'T EXPECT US TO VOTE

DON'T BE A WASTEMAN + WASTE YOUR VOTE.

Calling all MC’s

Download this beat by legendary grime producer 5ive Beatz and record your own bars about the importance of voting and upload with the hashtag #rizeupuk. The best version will be chosen on June 8th by industry experts and you will be given time in a central London studio to record a tune professionally (not including travel and accommodation).

Who are we

Rize Up was created by Josh Cole, a street photographer and film-maker and Jane Powell, founder of the men’s suicide prevention charity, CALM. It’s supported by a collective of people from different music scenes, media and entertainment who know that anything is possible. We’re NOT here to campaign for any party. In fact, we’re doing this because we think politics isn’t working for young people.
