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: Sharon Baptist Church Celebrates 130th Anniversary: Lt. Gov. Rutherford and Congressman Cummings, former Chief Judge Robert Bell on the Scene as Baltimore City Heads for April 2016 Primary Election
I, for one, cannot stomach that. I insist on seeing black people get educated and employed and open increasingly more businesses and I don’t care if the politician is Democrat or Republican, I just want to know that they are doing their best to represent the needs of the community moreso than their own political career. Actually, the more you serve the people, the more people want to push you higher. So, push your career by pushing black progress. When black politicians fail the people, a Freddie Gray Uprising occurs.

The Glover Report: HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW: Vestiges of Slavery Evoke Disdain of Cheatham, Amin: Wyman Park Statue of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson
Cheatham said that since Baltimore City and Baltimore County are discussing the topic of remaining vestiges of slavery, let’s put this one on the table as well.
Cheatham and Amin wonder the message this sends to a majority black city – right in plain sight of thousands of passersby daily, including Johns Hopkins University students.

Op/Ed: Vanguard Justice Society Welcomes Commissioner’s Challenge to Stand Up for Reforms & Stand Against Police Misconduct to Rebuild Community Trust
Although Commissioner Batts claims credit for reforms in “ethics, training, discipline, equipment, efficiencies, and policies,” we anticipate that the U.S. Department of Justice investigation into the force’s practices and procedures—which Vanguard has repeatedly welcomed--will show that the department still has a very long way to go. In addition, we anxiously await the results of the pending Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) that may reveal a clearer picture of the deployment of public safety resources prior to, during, and immediately after the civil disturbance on April 27—actions that we fear may have, and continue to put both police officers and the public at risk.
