For the last sixteen years, re:power has been a trusted leader in political training around campaigning and capacity building, and we’re excited to keep that momentum going. We’re proud of our 100,000 alumni across the country who have gone on to run for office, lead in their communities, and step up as movement leaders.
In 2018, we went through a comprehensive organizational transformation, from Wellstone Action to re:power. Our new name and brand is our answer to what we view as a need in the movement: an expansion of what justice looks like for our people through a framework of inclusive politics. We’re offering a different narrative of who is a leader, who participates in politics, and what outcomes we are fighting for. Inclusive politics is a framework that makes space and creates structures for the leadership, needs, and victories of who we have identified as our communities: primarily people of color, and specifically, women of color and nonbinary folks. It means that those lived experiences, perspectives, and ideas are represented in our government and power structures.
We are a team of organizers, strategists, and technologists dedicated to building transformative political power. We partner with individuals, organizations, and coalitions across the country through facilitation, coaching, and skills training to uncover leaders within communities and create radical change. In addition to our public trainings, we also deliver customized training opportunities in the following areas: managing elections, building movements, and movement technology.
