POWER Celebrates 10th Anniversary!

September 25, 2021 marked POWER’s tenth anniversary of connecting diverse faith communities, speaking truth to power, and striving to change Pennsylvania — and the world. Join us in celebrating throughout the year as we reflect how far we have come and envision our shared future!

Building Communities of Opportunity that Work for All

POWER works with faith communities in Southeastern and Central Pennsylvania to address local and statewide issues while simultaneously strengthening the life of our congregations. Our path to creating a more just world involves teaching people of faith how to build and exercise their own power to address root cause of the daily injustices they face.



Civic Engagement

Our voter engagement work is crucial in ensuring that our Black and Brown communities are seen and heard! It is our life’s work to make sure that these communities “Get Out To Vote” and follow through in exercising their political power.

Lifting Up a Moral Voice with Political Muscle

We help equip community leaders with the skills needed to reach out into their neighborhoods, identify common concerns, research possible solutions, and work with public officials and private businesses to put those solutions into effect. Through our issue-based campaigns listed below, leaders learn how to build and sustain strong teams and networks, research and analyze community issues, develop campaign strategy, and work with elected officials to implement changes in public policy.

We are over 50 congregations throughout Southeastern and Central Pennsylvania
