PARK CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) — More 2,000 students from Park City High School gathered as part of the “WeRiseUP” movement in support of community involvement and to promote student voter engagement. 

“With the world in the midst of a tremendous period of transition, our current success models aren’t adequate to support the future that is quickly emerging,” said WeRiseUP creator Kate Maloney. “At this critical inflection point, WeRiseUP curates an intimate inquiry to explore what it will take for humanity to create a thriving future.”

According to the organization, they have established a goal to make 2020 the largest first-time voter turnout ever.

Artist John Quigley joined them by assisting in creating an aerial art piece made of out of those students. Several tech leaders and prominent activists also attended including key Tom Chi from Google and actor Kevin Bacon.
