RISE International is an organisation founded by former members of the notorious Children of God/The Family cult with the aim of bringing cult activities to light and in particular exposing the mistreatment of children which goes on in these groups. Recently members of RISE appeared on CNN’s Larry King Live to discuss the Children of God and the work being carried out by RISE, a transcript of which is available here.

On 10th August, RISE International will be holding a memorial for child victims of cults; for more information, please consult their website.
