Triangle People Power (TPP) is a youth-run branch of People Power, the ACLU's grassroots movement. We are based on the Reverse Triangle model of power, and we advocate for a variety of civil liberties; our activism is intersectional. TPP is based in the Triangle area of North Carolina, but our projects are state- and region-wide.
