On forward-looking ideas from progressive non-profit leaders
On social media to ask questions and offer ideas:
By connecting to leaders with real-world experience creating change
All progressive change-makers benefit from connecting with peers and amplifying each others’ voices.
with tackling inequitable conditions in non-profits with limited resources and recognition.
We created a podcast to amplify the voices of those building power and making change.
How are you powering up your non-profit?
You don’t have to be limited by the way things have always been done. Instead be empowered to take on big, bold policy change.
I was propelled into community organizing when I was illegally evicted 30 years ago. I understand the challenges and potential of working for social justice in non-profits with finite resources and support.
I was launched into nonprofit policy advocacy 30+ years ago when my landlord, looking to maximize his profits in a gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood harassed, robbed and illegally evicted me from a property he owned. I quickly found neighborhood and statewide nonprofits, learned about tenant’s rights and how to advocate for policy change at city hall and the state capitol. Most importantly, I joined my neighbors who waged a successful years-long battle to stay in their homes.
Since then, I have worked in nonprofits with a social change mission as an organizer, fundraiser, policy advocate, program developer and executive director. I understand what it takes to be effective, stay solvent, and improve the lives of underinvested people and communities. I care, deeply, profoundly about the systemic and racial injustices that have marked public policy making and I know that nonprofits are critical to reimagining what can be. I started Power Station to amplify the voices of leaders who build community, influence and power. They are our pathway to progressive change.
