Founded in 2003 as Wellstone  Action Fund —and rebranded in 2018 as re:power Fund —we are a team of organizers, strategists, and technologists dedicated to building transformative political power with Black, Indigenous and People of  Color (BIPOC) communities. We envision a future of inclusive politics where decisions about our communities are made by our communities at every level. re:power directly addresses  the lack of infrastructure and capacity our movement experiences by creating spaces for people to show up, learn the skills they need, and create the change they want to see through building power together. We are working for a future that includes all of us, not just some of us.

We work toward our vision by offering training and strategic support to BIPOC leaders, community organizations, and coalitions across the progressive ecosystem, focusing on Movement Building, Movement Technology, Civic Engagement, Governance, and Women of Color Leadership.   re:power’s programs are structured to support and prepare progressive leaders and organizations to do the following: 1) Plan - set bold visions and strategies, 2) Activate - move their communities into action, 3) Engage - retain people and develop their leadership, and 4) Build - build community and collective power for the long-term.

 re:power is laser-focused on training BIPOC folks with a clear racial justice lens that centers the needs of our communities above all else. This is central to our theory of change: When we partner and build power with BIPOC-led movements and leaders fighting for racial justice, then we will organize and mobilize communities that have intentionally been shut out of democratic participation to stand together, act together and create the change they seek. 

How we partner and build power:

  • Center and amplify the leadership of BIPOC communities, using our platform to break dominant narratives of what leadership is and what it looks like.
  • Train, coach, and strategize with movement builders to enhance their leadership practice.
  • Equip movements to imagine new structures, challenge systems of power, and organize by integrating multiple strategies under one roof, including grassroots and digital organizing, electoral campaigning, and public leadership and governance.
  • Create learning environments in which BIPOC voices, bodies, and lived experiences are honored, respected, and dignified.
