“We are each other's harvest; we are each other's business; we are each other's magnitude and bond.” – Gwendolyn Brooks

PCEJ’s mission has always been centered on racial equity. In the face of these concurrent crises–a virus that is disproportionately harming Black and Brown folks, amid a system that is doing the same–we will redouble our efforts and strive to be even more intentional about how we stand with our people to create a state and a country where no one has to live in fear, where no one is denied opportunity, where no one is unfairly targeted by the police, where no one’s humanity is denied because of the color of their skin. This movement is within us all, and we have to start close to home, with our cities, our parishes, and our state.


Who Are We?

The Power Coalition for Equity and Justice is a statewide civic engagement table, anchored by base-building organizations, in Louisiana that is working to shift power back to the people, fights policies that hurt our state’s families, and increases voter participation by building support structures for community activism.

Louisiana is one of four states with off-year statewide elections, meaning that every statewide office, every state legislative seat, and many local races were on the ballot in the October 12th Primary election and November 16th Runoff election. Since the early summer, the Power Coalition for Equity and Justice and our partners have been running a statewide 501(c)(3) get-out-the-vote operation focusing on infrequent and semi-frequent Voters of Color.

Your Investment in Power Allows Us to:

In March 2020, we released our Road Map to Recovery: People-Centered Policy Solutions to the COVID-19 crisis. A policy document developed by over 30 partner organizations across the state as a guide to an equitable recovery.



We remain innovative in the face of extreme crisis as the state’s Complete Count Committee. We are pushing our Census messaging and expanding our digital strategy to ensure everyone in our state gets counted.

Your COUNT MATTERS!

And finally, we escalated our organizing and are suing the state to expand Vote by Mail in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. All Louisianans have the right to safe and accessible voting options, and we will exercise our Power in the quest towards Equity.

In the midst of this pandemic, the Power Coalition will continue to be a place for us to do this work collectively and be in community.

We love and appreciate working with you all during this time. Many of you have experienced great loss and we hope you know we’re grieving right alongside you.

Never in our lifetime has there been a more urgent call for Power and Equity. We see the hopeful signs of change coming – and we know we cannot take our eyes off the road for even a moment – for the moment is right now.
