Right now, our world relies on an economy built on dirty energy, impacting the health, wallets, and lives of low-income communities of color first and worst.
Community members, organizers, and leaders are working with and in these spaces to move North Carolina towards solutions that are sustainable and just.
This is PowerUp NC. We are a statewide team whose values are rooted in economic, environmental, and racial justice.
We are building a movement for a stronger economy, healthier environment, and a more inclusive democracy. Through education, engagement, and grassroots organizing, we are advancing energy efficiency and renewable energy projects that lower energy bills, improve housing conditions, and reduce pollution by lowering dependence on fossil fuels.
We are working together to completely change our relationship with our environment and with each other. We need you to be a part of this work.
You are the experts on your lives and your communities, and you have enormous power to shape North Carolina’s present and future. Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge and tools to see wins in your communities.
At the end of the day, we want to support the residents of our state who understand what a great place this is to live and have ideas about how we can make it even better. Our leaders are supposed to put our best interests first. When this doesn’t happen, it’s our responsibility to take action and to pass the message on to our family, friends, and neighbors.
