Power Building

About Power Building

To build civic power, we must rise to the challenge of equipping people and organizations in the most vulnerable communities with the resources, funding, and advocacy systems they need to sustain healthy media environments.

Read below to learn more about our LPC Partnership Program and our Equity-driven consulting services.

LPC Partnership Program

Our partnership program is a funder-supported cohort where equitable media leaders receive personalized support ranging from organizational set-up, editorial frameworks, platform/audience development, community engagement strategies, business development and much more.

Each plan is informed by an LPC-designed Organizational Capacity Assessment (OCA) that takes a holistic approach to understanding and supporting the skillsets of each leader over a period of three-years.  By invitation-only, most projects in this portfolio were launched or expanded in part by findings from our Information Ecosystem Assessments and are leaders of nascent organizations with budgets under 25k.  Click below to learn more about partners and support their work!
