Raise It UP Entertainment brings you Raise It Up TV the #1 dirtbike street/stunt action film series in the world.
Thanks to thousands of fans worldwide, Raise It Up has become the most popular Internet video series featuring dirt bike riders from Baltimore City, MD, USA.
Raise It Up symbolizes a movement to express and showcase our talent and passion for riding dirt bikes. Centered in Baltimore City, the capital of the Raise It Up Movement, we are exposing the life and challenges of living in a city where the government tries to outlaw dirt bikes or anyone associated with one.
We behind the Raise IT Up Movement understand the deeper reasons involved in keeping dirt bikes illegal. We understand that we, the people, are being ignored. We understand that our voices, of everyday citizens, are not being heard or integrated when developing policy. We understand that it is not in the interest of our government to favorably respond to what thousands of youth want to do. And we understand why.
Raise It Up was founded for two main reasons.
The first reason is for creating Raise It Up is exposure. Motocross has always been the dominant arena for dirt bike talent. However the talent that exists in the streets around the world has long been under-represented. The stunt abilities of young riders in urban streets worldwide is as equally impressive as any motocross talent anywhere. With the Raise It Up Movement, we have created an opportunity for talented dirt bike riders to showcase their abilities to the world.
The second reason for creating Raise It Up is political. We have created a voice to address the political barriers that confront our passion. In Baltimore City, home of the Raise It Up movement, we are organizing a political movement to challenge the legitimacy of an unfair law that prohibits us from riding our dirt bikes in OUR city where WE live and pay taxes. However, from contacts we have made worldwide, we understand that we are not alone in this battle. Across the globe, local governments have ignored the interests of young riders, leaving them no alternatives but to abandoned dirt bikes or ride at the risk of being chased down by the authorities.
The Glover Report: BLACK BOX THEATRE: The Big Girls Chronicles: Nikki Scroggiins & Company Produce Powerful Theatrical Production on Women with "More to Love"
Sometimes, we forget how blessed we are. Roughly 5’9” or so and 172 lbs., I was once up to about 190 a couple of years ago. For the most part tho, my waste hasn't changed much from high school. In any event, the 190 lbs. was the heaviest I have ever been. Hence, last night’s play, no matter how one views the title of the play (“The Big Girls Chronicles”), was deep, inspiring and enlightening. A powerful reverberation of what a lot of people go through, regardless of sex, age, religion, etc. – Nikki Scroggins is on to something with "The Big Girls Chronicles."
I think the play should be seen around the world. It speaks volumes to the notion of overcoming challenges. Some of us, admittedly, have no idea what a heavy person goes through on a daily basis. Sometimes, it's moment by moment. Read in Full >>

The Glover Report: MD14: VOTE for Change: Neverdon, Hogan, Rutherford
At least I can live honest and know that I did all that is within my power to effectuate real change in Baltimore and in Maryland. At least I tried to make black folks’ priorities resonate in the minds of elected officials as well as the broader public. Be wise and be sure to make your vote count.
ENDORSEMENT: And so I ask that you, the voter, cast your vote for much-needed change in Baltimore and in Maryland. Write-in Neverdon for Baltimore State’s Attorney; he is more than capable. And do vote for my friend, Boyd Rutherford, and his running mate, Larry Hogan, for governor. Read in Full >>
