THE STORY:

All of us at POWER are excited to wine, dine, dance and celebrate with you as we mark fifteen incredible years of organizing, activating leaders and strengthening the movement for racial, economic and ecological justice!   Who we are:

POWER’s work is rooted in San Francisco, yet we have always understood that the problems we face in our local communities are connected to the problems that low-income and oppressed people experience all over the world. That’s why the organization is committed to ending poverty and oppression- once and for all.

In the spring of 2004, POWER entered an 18-month period of reflection and strategic planning to better understand how we could respond to the increasing displacement of working-class African American, Latino and Asian families and to the growing disparity between the have’s and the have-not’s in San Francisco. We then documented our conclusions by writing a book entitled, Towards Land, Work & Power, published in the winter of 2006.

In 2005 based on our findings, POWER initiated two organizing projects in Bayview Hunters Point and amongst women workers in San Francisco’s domestic work industry. Each of these projects continue to realize the founding vision of the organization: to build unity between African American and Latino communities to increase the POWER of low-income workers and tenants.

Throughout POWER’s years of work, our roles, tactics and strategies have changed as the economic and political terrain has shifted. What has never changed is our commitment to be a racial justice organization led by low-income people whose mission is to win economic, environmental, racial and gender justice for all.
