Did you know that the Leaders of Color program is working to build Black and Latino political and community power in Louisiana, Memphis, New York,  and Washington D.C.?

Community Health Professor Desi K. Robinson, who graduated from Leaders of Color’s first New York cohort, describes the program’s genius:

“A program of Democrats for Education Reform, Leaders of Color is a stellar leadership development program and is ABSOLUTELY (and unbelievably) FREE! The program is building a bench of Black and Brown leaders to increase representation in elected politics. LOC specifically vets and selects Black and Brown folks who have evinced leadership in their communities. LOC is an incredible professional and personal development program that will take folks to the next level.”

Building political and community power in Black and Latino communities can help build a more equitable society. The Leaders of Color program works to help more people get the skills they need to become the leaders their communities need.
