Imagining more for humanity.

Because imagining is the first step to creating the world we want.

At Raising Imagination, we’re examining social issues through the lenses of imagination to generate ideas, conversations, and actions that span ideological differences to inspire activism and empathy in our children, our communities and the world at large.

We believe imagination is the magical ingredient to move us towards a more just and loving world. And we believe that magic is within reach. Come! Imagine with us.
