In Rising, a diverse but divided neighborhood struggles to survive rising floodwaters and bias in the heart of America.The original short film by director David Nutter and screenwriter Lena Waithe asks the question, “why does it take a disaster to bring us together?”

Rising is a powerful film that takes us back to where we started with Love Has No Labels, reminding everyone to see each other as humans above all else. The film captures the poignant story of a diverse neighborhood coming together in a flood, rising above their differences to support each other in a time of need.

At a time where we’re seeing stories of togetherness overcome the devastation that comes with hurricane season, this story is timely and relevant to all. Come Together at
