Leaders of Color identifies, trains, and supports community-based Black and Latino civic leaders, empowering them with the tools and resources to advance educational equity and the broader cause of racial justice. The Leaders of Color program fills the gap between the tremendous talent of community-based leaders of color and the resources and investment required to empower those leaders to create lasting civic and electoral change.

We specifically support leaders who may not typically have the opportunities and institutional support to run for public office, helping them develop the skills and leadership experiences needed to make national and global impact.

Here’s how we do it:
