Vision Statement

We Are Power believes that the power to transform our world for the better lies within every individual, and that when individuals use their creativity, humor, and personal experience to inform their friends, neighbors, and fellow citizens, anything can happen.

We believe that solutions to the challenges we share can be found through organizing and communication.

Our goal is to provide easily digestible information in the form of short videos articles, and advocacy tutorials to inspire ideas for how individuals can make a positive impact.

    Hey Tara and Raychel,

    I really like your site. In fact, it shares many similarities with my site, http://www.iaminformed.wordpress.com and I would like to link you guys from my site, and would appreciate it if you take a look at some of my stuff. I basically try to present issues that don’t receive enough attention, or present the side of issues that doesn’t get much press. I like your concept of empowering people with the true facts.
