Advocacy Link
In Louisiana, we are assisting community vaccinationsPower Coalition is a coalition of community-based organizations who work together to educate and empower voters across Louisiana. Through our voter engagement and community organizing work, we seek to unify our collective voices into a stronger, more cohesive force that can successfully advocate for an agenda of shared values and issues.

Our work is diverse and includes power mapping, listening sessions, organizing, voter engagement, policy advocacy, and leadership development. It is centered on creating spaces where community can come together to lift up the issues that impact them, and then connect those issues to local, regional, and national resources–including the state voter file–to move our shared agenda.

In Louisiana we are working with the Department Health, local health departments, and other organizations to #BringBackLouisiana  and get our communities vaccinated. We are working in targeted areas across the state where vaccination rates are low to encourage people to get vaccinated. Find out more at covidvaccine.La.gov

Center For Common Ground is setting up phone banks to assist Power Coalition by calling communities of color in Louisiana and helping folks get covid vaccinations, in addition to connecting them to community health resources.
