Uptown Rising is a center for unity connecting communities in North Columbia, South Carolina. We are a South Carolina nonprofit corporation.

Our North Columbia, Eau Claire and North Main Street communities are places full of history, diversity, and wonderful neighbors.

Members of our community have been working hard for decades to create a place that is safe for children, enjoyable for families, and inviting for businesses and development. Neighborhood associations, churches, parks, schools, local businesses and concerned citizens are working together to make this a vibrant part of Columbia, South Carolina.

We come together to celebrate our culture and provide opportunities to build community, and we also come together to address crime, blight, and anything that would compromise or threaten the progress we have all worked so hard to make for North Columbia.

Projects of Uptown Rising so far include stopping predatory business operations, organizing a major rally against gun violence, registering voters, and promoting racial reconciliation.
