A citywide membership-based organization, Empower DC is dedicated to effecting social change through a democratic, self-help empowerment approach to community organizing. Empower DC was founded in late 2003 by two community organizers who saw a need for an organization focused on supporting low and moderate income District residents in raising their voices and building their collective political power.


Since that time Empower DC has developed a strong track record and reputation as one of the most prolific and effective grassroots advocacy organizations in the District of Columbia, working on issues including affordable housing, quality affordable child care, preserving public property and improving public education.
