EmpowerPAC is an organization driven by everyday people who make a tremendous difference. It was cultural anthropologist, Margaret Mead who said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

The Birth of EmpowerPAC
Prior to the formation of EmpowerPAC, many of the activist board members belonged to the Mid-Atlantic Political Action Committee (MAPAC). Over a 25 year period, MAPAC proudly raised and contributed over $1.5 million to candidates, campaigns and initiatives that helped move our country towards a more equal and just system for every individual, not just the elite.
However, as we entered 2013, the MAPAC Board recognized that it’s structure needed an overhaul to meet current societal challenges. For example, following the Citizens United case, the Koch brothers began an unprecedented effort to fund attacks on the middle class, demonstrating that corporate funds, not grassroots power, have the potential to dictate the course of our country. In state after state, we witnessed an increased legislative attack on the three legs of democracy-human rights, civil rights and worker rights. There have been federal and statewide attempts to move voter suppression legislation. In cities across America, funding for education is being cut or eliminated, focusing attacks on teachers rather than the urgent need to invest in quality early childhood education.
So, this is why we formed EmpowerPAC. EPAC is an organization driven by the values of everyday people. We strive to build long-lasting change throughout communities by supporting progressive candidates and advancing policies that promote and sustain equality and justice for all. EmpowerPAC is committed to the premise of joining, amplifying and empowering the collective voice of the people. EPAC utilizes a combination of social media and web-based platforms to deliver information on the campaigns, candidates and issues that we support. We are asking you to take action and help address these endeavors. We want you to join us as a partner in change. Follow us on Facebook or at www.empowerpac.org.
