    About Rise Up Rochester

    In response to Rochester, New York’s 50+ homicides in each of the years 2004–2007, on January 5, 2008, Baber African Methodist Episcopal Church launched a countywide anti-snitching billboard campaign named You Bet I Told through Rise Up Rochester, a nonprofit organization that provides support to crime victims and their families. Rise Up Rochester seeks to empower the community to establish and maintain a nonviolent culture.
