PowerUP is committed to reinventing the spirit of representative democracy through collective engagement, civic education, and cooperative enterprise. PowerUP offers a platform to those interested in putting their passion for Marblehead into action that invests in and celebrates Community.
Here at PowerUP01945, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for our children. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits. Dismantling and reinventing efforts are fraught with obstacles. We believe that we are more impactful as a collective. Together we will mobilize, affirm and connect people of all ages, identities and backgrounds into a collective power that will prioritize the core principle that We the People are the voice of the future. Read our Manifesto for our core beliefs.
“You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world. And you have to do it all the time.”
Dr. Angela Y. Davis
PowerUP01945 challenges each of us to shake off complacency and the belief that "how it's always been done" is the only way. We are a movement dedicated to the love of town, the love of community, the love of our families and neighbors.
