Power Coalition for Equity and Justice
The Power Coalition for Equity and Justice (PCEJ) is a statewide civic engagement table in Louisiana that works to shift power back to the people, fights policies that hurt Louisiana’s families, and increases voter participation by building support structures for community activism. PCEJ aims to make the state of Louisiana a case study for how to end poverty through innovative policy, civic engagement, and adequate resources. We bring the voices of our constituents to the forefront to create hope for communities by lifting up a vision of equity, voice and power. Our support of community-driven activism and grassroots leadership development empowers citizens to address classism, racism, and other marginalization in their own lives and communities instead of having their voices ignored in the traditional, top-down structures of power.
