Our community’s power will be nurtured through revolutionary love to create confident and fulfilled individuals so that they may reach their highest aspirations.
Poder NC Action is a 501c4 nonprofit organization that builds people power in the growing Latinx community in North Carolina -- through traditional community organizing and innovative technologies -- by investing in leadership development, educating the public about issues and elections, and intentional base-building for long-term movement wins.
Poder NC is inspired by Mijente and their orientation towards “our people.” We share this groundedness which was the result of tireless liberation work between queer Black women and queer Latinas. Thanks to their work, we too can echo our principles as being fiercely pro-Black, pro-Latinx, pro-LGBTQ+, and pro-Reproductive Justice.
Poder’s base is young Latinxs and their peers. Many of our members are in rural North Carolina.
