Along with our sister organization POWER Action, we're hosting the “Freedom Express” bus tour across the State of Pennsylvania October 18th – November 4th, 2022 . This tour is about Restoring Faith in Democracy, helping people imagine a Pennsylvania where we all thrive, and calling out the bad actors financing oppression by supporting White Christian Nationalist causes.
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.
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.
NEW: Annual Report 2021
An insurrection, continued political division, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The challenges of 2021 were in many ways a continuation of what we saw in 2020. Although last year’s elections weren’t as high-profile as the previous year’s, the fight for democracy continued in school board and commissioners and council meetings, across Pennsylvania and across the nation.
POWER organizers were there to educate, train, and support our communities as they grappled with issues and elections that would directly impact their day to day lives.
