“A rising tide doesn't raise people who don't have a boat. We have to build the boat for them. We have to give them the basic infrastructure to rise with the tide.”

Rahul Gandhi


The Rising Tide Initiative draws inspiration from the quote John F. Kennedy often repeated, "A rising tide lifts all boats." We approach new participants with an open, collaborative attitude. We promote "Collaboration," "Yes, And" and "Connectedness." We participate actively in the community and look forward to seeing you at an event or if you stop by to see us.
