About

PowerPAC believes every person should have economic dignity and security. We believe every family should have quality health care, education and housing. We envision a future for this state and this nation in which the electorate is energized and empowered, and reflective of America’s growing diversity.

PowerPAC.org is a nonprofit advocacy and political organization. PowerPAC.org was organized to champion democracy and social justice in states and communities across the country.

PowerPAC.org officially began in 2004, after helping run the successful field operation against Proposition 54 during the 2003 recall election. The defeat of Prop 54 provided a glimpse into the future of California politics and demonstrated the potential for forging a powerful, multi-racial, unapologetic, legislative and electoral majority for justice. Equally important, the Proposition 54 campaign reunited long-time activists and organizers who worked together to conduct a grassroots operation that helped erase a 21-point deficit in the polls.

Since then PowerPAC has worked with dozens of existing grass-roots organizations to help them increase voter turnout in the fastest-growing and thus most strategic parts of the state of California, as well as the rest of the nation — states like Georgia, Florida, Maryland, and Texas.
