We are very excited to announce our new class of over 60 leaders in Louisiana, Memphis, and Washington, D.C.! These leaders are passionate advocates for equitable policy, community engagement, and civic action in their communities.“Each fellow brings something powerful and unique to their communities and to leadership within them. Over the coming year, it is our goal to provide these community leaders with the skills, knowledge, and tools that they need to make a positive impact on their local public schools, their local communities, and well beyond.” said Mike Bland, Vice President, Leaders of Color.
This year, we set a new organization record of 19 alumni elected to public office and 90 alumni currently serving in positions of community power and influence. We are proud that all of our fellows and alumni act on the great responsibility they carry as community leaders. Here are some highlights from around the country.
Our monthly newsletter provides a snapshot of our work to build Black and Latino civic engagement and political power in our communities.
