Join Our Team
Power California harnesses the energy of young voters of color and their families to create a state that is equitable, inclusive and just for everyone who calls California home. We are a statewide multi-racial civic engagement organization leading electoral movement building work with on-the-ground community partners in urban, suburban and rural communities throughout the state. We began our work in 2004 as Mobilize the Immigrant Vote (MIV), launching the first ever multi-ethnic, immigrant-based coalition to build the electoral campaign capacity of community-based organizations in California. In 2016, MIV partnered with Movement Strategy Center to co-lead YVote, an electoral movement building project aimed at building a community-based network to transform young Californians of color into a powerful new voting bloc. This year, YVote came aboard MIV, and our organization transformed into Power California. Power California is a nonpartisan 501(c)3 charitable organization with an affiliated 501(c)4 social welfare organization. Working together across several California offices, we foster a collaborative working environment that values high-quality work.
