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!
