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.

The Communications Director designs and executes communications strategies for electoral and policy campaigns, supervises the Digital Strategist, and engages tens of thousands of young voters of color through various communications strategies.
The Digital Strategist develops and coordinates strategies and campaigns to engage young voters through social media and other digital strategies and to increase the visibility and followings for both Power California and its sibling 501(c)4 social welfare nonprofit.
