Power 2 the Hill

Since 2017, our passionate, energetic and creative team of volunteers has been tenaciously focused on building knowledge and understanding about what it takes to increase the power and influence of the Allison Hill community while combating voter disengagement and cynicism.

Voting rights are the most basic tenet of our democracy and the bare minimum one should expect from the government
