It Was all a dream 


to flex at the polls

In 2019 we started as a humble grassroots campaign called "I Matter/Tengo Poder" to change the thinking that "my vote doesn't matter" and bring civic engagement to: the hood, el barrio, the block, los vecinos, and OUR communities across the five boroughs. 

In our first 100 days we: 

- engaged 200+ New Yorkers on how to get themselves and others informed and prepared to vote

- registered 1000+ New Yorkers from across the 5 boroughs to vote in time for the 2020 Presidential Primaries 

- raised $1,600 to help help us continue on our mission to change the game of civic engagement

PODER is a Spanglish, non-partisan, grassroots organization that gets Black and Brown New Yorkers registered to vote and civically engaged.
