"I’ve always been deeply impacted by social change and outraged at a lot of the events going on in our world, but felt like I had no clear actionable steps to take to help.

Electric Potential gave me a starting point for me to take action and connected me with so many others who felt the same way I did."

-Florence L.

"The EP community is an inclusive space that has not only allowed me to share my own ideas but also learn so many things from other members! Being a part of the community has made me feel so much more inspired and motivated on my social change journey."

- Amy N.

"Electric Potential taught me not only what global issues are currently impacting people around the world, but what steps I can take to advocate for solving them. I love how I’m in a community of young people just like myself, and am always learning something new."

- Nora R.

"I’ve always been passionate about social change, but I’ve also struggled with finding reliable, clear resources. Electric Potential allowed me to learn about and actually engage in issues that I had interest in, and connected me to a diverse community to share ideas and learn from others."

- Saige C.

"The EP community is an open and welcoming place that I feel comfortable in to talk about various topics from our personal work to global issues."
