Vision, Mission & Values

A progressive organizing & co-woking platform

GAIN POWER is on a mission to diversify, democratize, and demystify our Democratic party and the Progressive movement(s) ecosystem. We aim to disrupt institutions by creating new a model, practices, and programs to break down barriers and build bridges to better access political organizations. We push to better open space and create access to the institutions that impact our elections, civics, advocacy, and ultimately our government and democracy.

How can we achieve this ambitious agenda? Well, clearly we can’t alone. GAIN POWER is creating a collaborative community and virtual networking place for the leaders & deciders in progressive politics, elections, and legislative advocacy. By opening career opportunities, networking & marketing Democratic & Progressive candidates, causes, and consultants – especially with a focus on BIPOC talent we move the needle forward.

GAIN POWER is 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 and organize programs to facilitate professional networking, development, marketing, storytelling, lesson sharing, best practices, celebrating and elevating the people and organizations working for progressive policy and change. GAIN POWER is a place for sharing events, resources, and market space for leaders and activists working to GAIN POWER through electoral and legislative politics.

We are a platform to share news 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.

We launched in 2020. 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 movements united to defeat Trump and demote McConnell, elect more Democratic Senators, and protect the Democratic majority in Congress federally. We are now united to support President Biden and Kamala Harris. We also must now win and expand majorities in state legislatures, pass more progressive ballot measures, and protect our Democracy by expanding and promoting voting rights in the states. These were our imperatives before COVID-19 and they still are today. Winning up and down the ballot is critical to advancing a progressive agenda.

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

We have a long way to go till the Democratic party, leading allied progressive organizations and the consulting and vendor community servicing them look like and represent the full diversity of America.

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 work 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.

We all have much work to do to live the values we expouse. We are not afraid to be critical when needed – especially if that helps improve. We have a long way to go till the Democratic party, leading allied progressive organizations and the consulting and vendor community servicing them look like and represent the full diversity of America.

Access to opportunities with our leading institutions is especially opaque and controlled by a few that do little to create openings for new and diverse staff, consultants and vendors. GAIN Power believes an open and more transparent marketspace will make it easier for more diverse political professional women, people of color, and freelancers to market themselves and their products and services.

Our vision, mission, and values align when we a truly reflective party and representative democracy. We are creating a new way our bringing together our community to collaborate to achieve these goals.
