The Reality

Struggling workers in every community are overwhelmed by the lack of time, social connections and education to make meaningful improvements in their lives. We can all make change, together.

Let’s break the cycle

The Empowerment Institute is launching a free curriculum for every interested resident that desires to become more active in their communities. There will be monthly workshops for different levels of activism and potential leadership. A class for everyone.

The future is now

Local and regional experts are seeking to build a pipeline of activated neighbors and students to become consistent voters, community leaders, organizers and government officials. Every level of activism is needed.

Community = Progress

The Empowerment Institute will incorporate both action and social wellness into the year-round curriculum to foster relationships and trust among the participants. Successful communities are active communities.

The Goal

If we increase regional activism by just 5%, we can improve the lives of thousands of residents in the Central Valley.
