POWER Metro was founded in February 2016 by more than thirty diverse congregations representing 15,000 residents of Montgomery County, the state’s third largest. POWER Metro brings together people across lines of difference and suburban distance that have historically divided them, to build a new kind of community and advance the common good. POWER Metro has been a leader on the state-level campaign to restore billions in cuts to the state’s Basic Education Fund and to implement a funding formula to correct for racial bias. POWER Metro also led efforts in 2017 to lift up the voices of those impacted by proposed cuts in the health care safety net and successfully urged local lawmakers to preserve the federal Affordable Care Act and CHIP health care program. POWER Metro has since expanded to Bucks, Delaware and Chester Counties.
