Indiana legislators are launching a full-on attack on Hoosiers' right to protest in what is clearly backlash against the Black Lives Matter protests that occurred across the state last summer.SB 198 would chill Hoosiers' free speech under the guise of an "anti-riot" bill and remove power from communities on multiple fronts:
  • The bill would enhance criminal penalties for rioting, obstruction of traffic, and curfew violations.
  • It would discourage release on bail in some instances for charges during what the law defines broadly as an "unlawful assembly."
  • Lastly, SB 198 would grant the Indiana Attorney General authority to prosecute cases of individuals accused of committing a criminal offense during an unlawful assembly, in a clear attempt to take power and oversight of local law enforcement away from the very communities they are meant to serve. There are already laws on the books that address offenses associated with rioting in Indiana, and with these additional penalties, Indiana runs the risk of chilling First Amendment speech and criminalizing legitimate protest activity.
The right to protest is critical to a functioning democracy, as it allows the people to hold government accountable. These are overactions and will inevitably be used against marginalized communities.We must fight back. Send a message to your representative below, to oppose this measure.

Many of the teen survivors served by Ascent 121 live in a locked secure residential recovery center for six to twelve months. They participate in medical and therapeutic care, attend high school classes, and have free time for activities. It is fun and therapeutic to have a variety of activities for the girls to enjoy during their recovery.

Crooked Creek Northwest Community Development Corporation is located on the northwest outskirts of Indianapolis. We work to enhance housing, spur economic development, and create beautiful corridors for one of the country’s most diverse and distinct neighborhoods.

There are more than 105,000 living on Indy’s northwest - many having lived here all their live. Newcomers and immigrants in search of good schools and reasonable priced find urban housing with a suburban feel. Established residents have a history of community involvement and many multigenerational households have raised young activists and organizers.

​Community organizing sparks grassroot efforts that introduce change in deserving neighborhoods. While there are concentrations of commerce many neighborhoods along the main corridors experience blight and lack of new developments.

This year, we began hosting monthly resident meeting to identify top community needs and assets and to form framework for our quality of life planning sessions - set to begin, in person, this fall.

We are anxious to take the next steps in making the community more livable and to improve the quality of life for all by focusing on five areas:

1. Housing

2. Commercial Redevelopment

3. Neighborhood Revitalization

4. Infrastructure Improvement

5. Community Engagement

​To capture the input and energy of this neighborhood, the CDC invites residents to participate in regular quality of life planning meetings and discussions. Our efforts to make this area a better place to live, work, and play will be pursued through the vision painted by the people who live here.

​Once the framework for the plan has been completed, residents can join action teams and begin pursuing agreed upon goals set-forth in the planning sessions.

Elevate Indianapolis was founded in 2016 replicating Elevate USA, a national model with a 40-year history when we launched in the Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS). To date Elevate has served over 550+ IPS students in 3 near-eastside schools.Elevate Indianapolis serves high-risk IPS students with a pipeline of continuous support beginning in elementary school and continuing through high school graduation. The pipeline begins with 4th and 5th grade students at an elementary school which “feeds” into a middle school and high school. All three schools offer simultaneous Elevate programming.The pipeline of support centers around positive relationships between students and their Elevate teacher-mentors. Teacher-mentors are a daily presence in the lives of Elevate students inside and outside of the classroom, year around 24//365.Elevate teacher-mentors engage shoulder to shoulder with students in four primary ways throughout the calendar year: in-class learning, after school mentoring and events, post-secondary preparation, and unique adventure opportunities.CURRENT NEED OF WEST SIDE STUDENTS At Elevate, we believe that every child is of great worth and has the desire and potential to succeed. However, there are significant circumstances challenging IPS students and preventing them from achieving their dreams.It’s our vision to launch a second Elevate Indy pipeline in the near-westside of Indianapolis.Outside of the classroom, many high-risk children live in generational poverty and are accustomed to a transient home life. Often lacking consistent positive adult relationships, experience an increased likelihood of teen pregnancy compared to teens in Indianapolis as a whole, and they live in a culture where dropping out of high school is commonplace.

Without community support for George Washington students to keep them in school and on track for graduation, dropout rates may rise. The swelling number of students without a diploma and the job skills necessary to obtain gainful employment will stagnate economic growth and deteriorate the social well-being of local communities.For more detail review our Elevate Indianapolis Westside Strategic Plan.BUT, WILL ELEVATE HELP? YES! The Elevate model is data driven which leads to its impact and results. Data collection and analysis are utilized to demonstrate outcomes and make continuous improvements to create lasting change.
  • 50% of all out of school mentoring happens in collaboration with partners.
  • 90% of Elevate Indy students graduate from high school.
  • 80% of Elevate high school students are on track to graduate.
  • 80% of Elevate Indy graduates are ready to be enrolled, enlisted, or employed.
  • 47% of Elevate Indy students give back to their communities by engaging in community service activities.
Elevate Indy staff publish weekly dashboards of complete program activity and student caseloads. Each year, Elevate Indy facilitates the annual Thriving Youth Scorecard process that includes the 40 Developmental Assets survey, in addition to focus group student discussions, web-based app questionnaires, and annual fidelity assessments with Elevate USA and school partners.WILL YOU INVEST IN ELEVATE’S EXPANSION INTO THE WESTSIDE? To impact over 450 new Elevate students annually, your investment is critical. Will you partner with us to serve our community? To create the type of world-class city for all our citizens, will you invest in our westside expansion?Thanks to the generosity of community partners and foundations, Elevate Indy has secured nearly $150,000 of funding to launch into the westside.If you would like to join others who’ve already given and make an investment online, use the form below.To arrange a site visit, attend an engagement event to meet and serve Elevate Indy students, or learn more about our westside expansion from our president, Aaron Story, contact [email protected].
