POWER (Parents Organizing for Welfare + Economic Rights)

POWER (Parents Organizing for Welfare and Economic Rights) is a non-profit organization based in Olympia, WA that advocates for the rights of low-income families. We are empowerment-based and made up of low-income parents and their allies. Our mission is to advocate for a strong social safety net while working toward a world where children and caregiving are truly valued, and the devastation of poverty has been eradicated. We run an advocacy hotline that parents can call to find out about their rights. Historically, we have held various workshops and nights out for parents (also offering childcare) so that they can have an opportunity to network and build a supportive community. We have also approached legislatures, and told lawmakers our stories in efforts to try and change laws and policies so that an adequate social safety net may be provided.

Alchemilla Feminist Economic Collaborative is a project of POWER. Mostly made up of low income Moms who are small business owners, Alchemilla is an egalitarian and matriarchal group seeking economic equality by the means of a right to a desirable livelihood and a right to be with our families. At Arts Walk and pop up markets we sell our homemade arts, crafts and products as a sustainable way of supporting ourselves and our families in a society that isn't reliably supportive, especially on an economic level.
