THE STORY:

It is October! The month of the balanced and justice oriented Libra. This October 21st, I will turn 22 years old. Instead of a gift, food, or a party, I am asking my supportive friends and family to donate to POWER, People Organized to Win Employment Rights.

As most of you know, as part of my time at the University of California, Santa Cruz I interned with POWER, a social justice organization in San Francisco. I was fortunate enough to work with a group of talented and dedicated organizers on various local and national campaigns.

What POWER does is empower low-income families, youth and workers of color in San Francisco to create healthy, thriving neighborhoods. Right now, POWER is the only group in San Francisco organizing low-income bus riders to improve public transportation for everyone so that families can connect to schools, job opportunities, and can be a part of the cultural life of their city. They are also leading a campaign to pass the first-ever Domestic Worker Bill of Rights in California, so that domestic workers will have the same basic workers rights and protections enjoyed by other workers. What makes POWER unique is that it develops the ability of their members to move forward their own solutions to problems facing their communities. POWER is seen as a movement leader, and builds alliances with other organizations committed to racial and economic justice.

 

So in honor of my 22nd birthday and POWER's 15th birthday, I am asking YOU to contribute with a donation of your chose to keep POWER's great work going!

 

 

POWER can't do this work without people like you and me who decide that one way we can support this work is by donating.  

 

If you donate $10 POWER can purchase materials for outreach! If you give $25 today, you will match the amount that each of POWER's low-income members give annually. If you donate $50, POWER can train 20 youth in public speaking so that their stories can reach decision makers and reporters. If you give 100, five POWER leaders can meet with legislators in Sacramento.   THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
