Rise Up CBUS Poster 2022

2022 Rise Up Programming In 2022, Rise Up CBUS! launched it's inaugural year of events! As a new program of the Department of Neighborhoods and the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department, Rise Up CBUS! supports and promotes Opportunity Rising, Mayor Andrew J. Ginther's aspirations for every Columbus resident to equitably prosper and grow

Over the course of nine events, residents heard from City Departments and community organizations to hear about our City's commitment to equity. Residents listened to local artists and enjoyed free food as we hosted nine events in neighborhoods across Columbus.

The nine events here held at: 

May 6: Bethel International United Methodist Church
June 16: Scioto Southland Community Center
June 23: Weinland Park
July 7: Linden Community Center
July 14: Barack Community Center
July 29: Barnett Community Center (National Night Out collaboration)
August 11: Franklin Park
August 18: Hauntz Park
September 17: YMCA North
