Empowering underrepresented communities towards long-term political power.
Engaging in culturally competent campaign methods at local, state, and national level.
Amplifying on-the-ground voices for greater legislative influence and impact.
Enhancing operations through financial, data/research, or communications assistance.
PowerPAC believes that the most effective way to build political power for historically underrepresented constituencies is to invest in long-term political infrastructure that can be mobilized for short-term and long-term victories.
Our process includes conducting research and analysis on the political landscape, and identifying critical social justice issues to bring more voters - particularly voters of color - into the political process. From there, PowerPAC directs financial and human resources to strategic local and state legislative fights, ballot initiatives, and other campaigns by organizing donors who are committed to social justice politics.
We believe that we will only have a true democracy when the electorate is engaged and representative of the population.

I didn’t decide early on in life that politics was a career I’d pursue or even a path I’d cross. I didn’t care as deeply as some and I admit, even today, I feel out of place in the progressive world. My peers often make me feel like I haven’t lost enough, haven’t fought enough, Read more about Oh, Politics[…]
