Spreading a healthy, truthful, sometimes humorous and ultimately positive message about our goal to objectively study the paranormal, RISEUP is regularly available to provide educational and entertaining presentations for your group or public organization. While each of our presentations are unique, they generally revolve around the history and legends surrounding paranormal subject matter and are often complemented by anecdotes and evidence from our own investigations and experiences and are always done in an informative and oft-times humorous manner.
