GAIN POWER is a community news, networking, and marking platform dedicated to promoting and celebrating individuals, and organizations who power democracy, elections, advocacy campaigns, and government to bring about social, political, and economic change.
Our mission is to diversify, demystify, and democratize democracy work and elevate the organizations and leaders who work to improve it. Many who seek power have demonized our democracy, politics, and government. Through attacks on our democracy, leaders, and institutions – disinformation, they have made our system of government toxic and turned off many we need to participate. GAIN Power is a community for the people powering positive and progressive politics and leaders dedicated to bettering our country.
Our name and work are inspired by this quote from Dr. Martin Luther King:
We build community programs for creative change-makers, progressive professionals, Democratic candidates, campaigns & consultants, ideologically left advocacy nonprofits, socially conscious businesses, Democracy activists, advocates, artists, influencers, donors and investors, disrupters, resisters & persisters.
We offer career, networking, and marketing opportunities and events. We’re building directories, a marketplace of and for leaders with ideas, services, professional development activities, intelligence, curated content, and stories about the people, campaigns, and organizations working to promote and protect our democracy and advocate for progressive policies.
GAIN POWER is a resource center and virtual meeting place for Democratic and Progressive leaders, talent, and campaigns looking for professional opportunities to engage in politics. We organize community award programs to celebrate and elevate the powerful work impacting democracy, elections, and advocacy.
GAIN POWER is open to all Democratic & Progressive Professionals. We are especially intentional in promoting Women, African Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, APIA, LGBTQI, and any underrepresented people who make up a majority of our electorate. We seek to promote diversity in our community of consultants, campaigns, and nonprofit organizations and to be part of making them more inclusive, intersectional, and representative. We seek all members’ ideas, opportunities, and collaboration in this effort.
