In January 2024, the Louisiana state legislature approved a new congressional voting map that includes two majority-Black districts. We are proud of the Leaders of Color who played a part in this decision. Learn more about the work from State Representative and Leaders of Color alum Vanessa Caston LaFleur.
Leaders of Color, Memphis, an organization focused on identifying, training and elevating Black and Latinx leaders in Memphis to become civic and political education leaders, released results of a new public opinion poll commissioned by the organization focused on the beliefs, aspirations, and priorities of likely voters in Memphis. The survey found that voters overwhelmingly support public school choice in Memphis and have a strong preference for an expansion of public school options as opposed to the creation of private school vouchers.
In 2024, we aim to chart a course that not only empowers leaders individually but also envisions a collective impact on a national scale.
Our monthly newsletter provides a snapshot of our work to build Black and Latino civic engagement and political power in our communities.
