For the 2022 ACTS campaign, the Spirit Squadron are proud to support Empower DC.
Since 2003, Empower DC has advanced racial, economic and environmental justice by investing in the leadership and organized political power of DC's lowest income residents and communities
The mission of Empower DC is to enhance, improve and promote the self-advocacy of low and moderate income DC residents in order to bring about sustained improvements in their quality of life. They accomplish their mission through grassroots organizing and trainings, leadership development, and community education. Empower DC is a citywide, multi-issue, membership-based community organizing project. Empower DC builds campaigns to address key issues that directly-impact their membership. The organization is led by its membership, Board of Directors and staff. Empower DC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
At the root of their work is a deep commitment to stopping the displacement of low income Black residents from DC, once known affectionately as Chocolate City, during an unprecedented time of gentrification. A citywide organization, their work has included long standing commitments to two of DC’s most historic Black communities – Ivy City and Barry Farm – in their fights for community-led equitable development, and against gentrification and displacement.
This campaign has ended but you can still donate to Empower DC!
