This rating was published 03/01/2021 and includes data from FY2019, the most recent 990 received at that time.

We're a team of organizers, strategists, and technologists dedicated to building transformative political power. Our work is tied to the belief that by partnering with individuals, organizations, and coalitions across the country, we can uncover leaders within communities to create radical change.

We believe in winning, by expanding and investing in an inclusive democracy, a politics of inclusion. A politics that benefits all of us.

An inclusive politics means we get real about power structures in this country that have excluded so many for so long. This means we need a strategy to engage effectively on race and gender equity if we want to dismantle the harmful effects of white supremacy and patriarchy in our communities.

Building an inclusive democracy looks like a lot of things, and for re:power, this shows up in our trainings. The core of our work for 17 years has always been about delivering the best skills and tools to the next generation of leadership.
