WEPOWER is building a team full of dreamers and doers. We partner with Black and Latinx communities to build power to re-design education, economic, justice, and health systems to be just and equitable for all. We build powerful relationships with community members and amplify their voices to inform critical decisions that impact their lives. We train community members to design new policies, organize, and lead policy and systems change. We provide early-stage companies with access to coaching, capital, connections, and community as they create jobs in the communities with whom we partner.
In just three years, WEPOWER has activated 300 community leaders, won a historic ballot measure that guarantees public funding annually for early childhood, supported 30 businesses with access to capital, coaching, and connections, and launched a one-of-a-kind investment fund for Black and Latinx businesses. We envision a future where systems are accountable to powerful communities that have been historically oppressed, and nurture our freedom, well-being, dreams, and joy. We are building a powerful movement led by everyday people, and we have bold plans for the years ahead to get us there. Join us!
Our team is…
● Creative: Lots of brainstorming and imagining what’s possible and then chasing each possibility until it is reality!
