San Francisco Peninsula People Power (SFPPP), a non-partisan, grassroots civil rights organization, was organized as a result of a nationwide event by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in March 2017 to encourage volunteers to help build and strengthen local communities in affirming our American values of respect, equality, and solidarity.   Our membership is located in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.

Our two primary interests are in immigrant rights, and voting rights and outreach. We also have members working on civil rights issues like criminal justice reform, and law enforcement surveillance.


People Power activists are organizing in communities across America to ensure that our local law enforcement officials defend – not threaten – our friends, families, and neighbors.

People Power groups are standing up for the most fundamental democratic right – the right to vote – and working to expand access to the ballot and make our democracy more representative.
