Examples of raising in a Sentence

  1. Charles Koch:

    We talk here about dollars and raising money and they are absolutely critical to getting this done, but they alone will not do the job. We know this from the successful movements in our country's history. It took the full commitment from the founding fathers, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the thousands of others who led successful movements. To defy the odds stacked against them, these leaders had to pledge their lives, fortunes and their sacred honor -- often at great personal sacrifice.

  2. Joe Biden:

    I hope that the current administration lives up to the promises it has made to advance human rights for everyone by raising this issue directly with Russia's leaders, the United States must lead the way to demand an end to these egregious violations of human rights.

  3. Stafford Smith:

    He has said this before and little has come of it. Rather than just raising Shaker's case, Mr Cameron must come back from Washington with a concrete date for Shaker's return home to London.

  4. Rajeev Dhawan:
