Building Power. Seeking Justice.
For the past 20 years, PowerPAC has been committed to building political power within communities of color and supporting progressive candidates of color long before they became household names.
We were there when Kamala Harris ran for CA Attorney General, before Ben Jealous became president of the NAACP, and when George Gascon ran his first race for San Francisco DA. Take a look at the breadth of our work in this video. We have supported voter engagement efforts in over 12 states and in this last cycle we were active in AZ, CA, FL, GA, MI, PA, and WI. We were a part of the first efforts to support President Obama’s 2007-08 primary and general wins. We were there in Alabama when the “Hidden Figures” of Alabama (strong African American women leaders heading up voting engagement work there) helped win Doug Jones’ election. We know you have felt the impact of our work and now we hope you will take a moment to get to know us and help support our work. Click the icons below to learn more.

Let's Make Good Trouble.
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.
