The Power Coalition

Baton Rouge, Louisiana



The statewide civic engagement group works to shift state power through community engagement, advocacy and leadership development. This grant provides general operating support, enabling the coalition to expand its statewide presence, strengthen organizational capacity and develop a comprehensive communications plan to engage its network of more than 100,000 citizens, with an eye to mobilizing on key local and state issues and increasing voting rates in local, state and federal elections.
