As a local grassroots organization, a central tenet of Power Up’s mission is community engagement. We recognize that the ways to move forward and create real, sustainable change is by caring for and protecting our own communities. This starts by creating connections and networks within our town. In order to foster community engagement and relationships, we have hosted a multitude of community events that aim to bring members of Manchester and outer towns together to collectively fight for justice and liberation. 

Some past community events include: 

Juneteenth Celebration 

Wake Up Show Up Power Up: Two Day Full Day Rally for Justice at Center Memorial Park 

Community Kickball Tournament 

Trunk or Treat Family Movie Night in Collaboration with Manchester Parkade Cinemas and Kamora’s Cultural Center 

Halloween Car Parade
