In today's political environment, there's no excuse for sitting on the sidelines. Our community has become a political target of the Trump Administration and it's time we learned how to fight back.

Our Power Building Summit is a one day hands-on training that will equip you with skills you can use to make a political impact right away. You will walk out of the summit fully prepared to talk to your friends, neighbors and family about voting and capable of influencing decision-makers on issues like preventing war and protecting civil rights. If you're ready to build power and political influence for your community, you do not want to miss this event!
