Welcome Victor Horton - Program Manager, Washington, D.C.!
Meet Victor Horton, our Program Manager in Washington, D.C.!
Why did you join Leaders of Color?
I joined Leaders of Color because I felt the position aligned perfectly with my skills and passions. I had previously worked for an organization that did similar work. However, I had spent much of my time training individuals who did not look like me and many times our values did not align. So when I saw the opportunity to train and support Black and Latino people to become civic change agents in their communities, I knew this was the perfect opportunity for me.
Name something people don't know about you.
That music plays an important role in my life. There is a song for every situation or problem – and many songs provide great solutions. Music is a universal language. Music can lift our moods, motivate us, combat depression, improve blood flow, lower levels of stress-related hormones, and ease pain. Anything that can do that, is a miracle. I say all that to say, I love music.
What are you the most excited about in this role?
What most excites me about this role is that, if I do this role well, I can really change education for the better for kids and families here in Washington, DC.
