RizeUp

And represent

The system works, it’s how they keep us down, how they ignore us. It’s time things changed.

MAKE SURE YOU VOTE ON JUNE 8TH
STAY TUNED FOR A MASSIVE TUNE BY THE RIZE UP SQUAD DROPPING ON MONDAY.

Our squad helped over a million people under 25 register to vote and almost two million under 35s. This is big. We broke every record!

Now if everyone who registered turns up to vote, politicians will have no choice, they will listen to us, they will fear us.

But if we register and we don’t turn up… we will confirm everything they say about us. We can’t fuck this up. So vote for whoever, spoil your ballot if you don’t like any of em, just make sure you turn up.

Rize up went all out to get people registering here are just some of the things we did…

We dropped over a half million flyers across the country, at raves, club nights, youth centres and town centres across the country.

We had street teams chatting out and about chatting to young people about why they matter and how together we can break the system

We put on a club night and got live sets from skinny man and Bossman Birdie

We took over @twitteruk and along with our mates form @bitetheballott and spread the word on why you need to vote.

We took over every Lush shop in the country and turned them into places young people and the homeless could advice on registering to vote.

We got thousands of you tweeting, facebooking and posting on insta about registering to vote and we got some big names doing it too

We took over Kiss FM with skits on voter registration playing every hour for two days Our videos, tweets, gifs, articles and films pulled in over 17,983,832 impressions on Twitter, nearly 7,830,798 million reached on Facebook and millions more on Instagram.

We were all over the radio on FUBAR, BBC and many more

We have been all over the news we even made it onto Newsnight

We were on the BBC, in the Guardian and all over the media

We spoke to millions, we changed minds and we broke every registration record… no lie.
