Power Shift, This is a new kind of politics.

Join us to see what it looks like to shift power to a new and diverse group of leaders. At the event, you will hear from the new leaders we have endorsed about how their lived experiences have and will impact their commitment to working for our communities. We welcome all, including those that this might be their first political event. We invite you to engage with our board to learn more about our work and ways to get involved. In a political climate where words are no longer enough, we will act by coming together.
Tickets are $25. Donating more than the ticket price makes you a host of our event! Ticket sales will go towards supporting the candidates we have endorsed.

We are excited to offer a table option, too. A table for 8 people is $400 and includes 5 bottles of wine, 2 cheese plates, and chocolates.
