Lead East Bay

What does it take to have public leaders who are accountable and responsive to the East Bay's most impacted communities? We believe that it requires recruiting, training and supporting leaders from our working class communities of color. To advance a much more aggressive agenda for progressive change, we need the help of leaders who apply social justice values to addressing issues ranging from affordable housing and land use to criminal justice, and who are accountable to other grassroots leaders in their communities.
