GAIN POWER’s is building a collaborative community and virtual networking place for the leaders & deciders in progressive politics, elections, and legislative advocacy.

We are 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 created a platform to facilitate professional networking and development, marketing, storytelling, justice, community wellness, and self-care. We a place for shared events, resources, and market space for leaders and activists working to GAIN POWER through electoral and legislative politics.

We want to be a place to share new and information about people working to promote and protect our democracy through Democratic and progressive politics and advocacy, voter education, civic communications, arts and culture.

In 2021, we are launching a series of awards and Top lists to showcase the best in our civic and political campaigns, honor and lift up the organizers and creators, highlight the best communications, and to share best practices so others might learn and emulate them. We are also sponsoring new scholarships to create unique opportunities to engage young people in civic work.

The founders and team who brought you Democratic GAIN 17 years ago are expanding to celebrate, lift up, market, and promote everyone working for Democratic and Progressive “GAINs” – whether for campaigns, organizations, or companies.

It was going to be an epic election year before COVID-19 attacked the world creating a global pandemic. It was epic politically before Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor’s were murdered and their deaths sparked a renewed civil right and racial justice movement. These two events however represent a radical realignment of the universe and seismic shifts changing how we live, work, manage our community and society.

Our movement united and to defeat Trump and demote McConnell, elect more Democratic Senators, and protect the Democratic majority in Congress federally. We also must now win and expand majorities in state legislatures, passing progressive ballot measures, protect our Democracy by expanding and promoting voting rights in the states. These were our imperatives before COVID-19. Winning up and down the ballot was critical for advancing our progressive agenda. Our work is about about the survival as a Democratic and civil society.

To that end, we seek only to work with people who share these values and reserve the right to remove individuals or organizations that don’t.

We believe diversity is the strength of our party, movement, and country and yet African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, LGBTQ and Women professionals are traditionally underrepresented in our professional community. GAIN Power seeks to especially highlight those who do this work. We want to create new opportunities for traditionally disenfranchised people and communities who form the base and backbone of our party and movement yet are underrepresented in every place.

Access to opportunities with leading institutions in our space are especially opaque and controlled by a few that do little to create openings for new and diverse consultants and vendors. GAIN Power believes an open and more transparent marketspace will make it easier for more diverse political professionals like women, people of color, and freelancers to market themselves and their products and services. We aim to democratize, demystify, and diversify the democratic & progressive landscape.
