Oakland Marriott Convention Center
550 10th Street, Oakland
Join us in celebrating the launch of LeaderSpring's first Women of Color LeadStrong Fellowship and honoring the accomplishments of female leaders of color in creating sustainable systems of change.
Nationwide, women are emerging as progressive grassroots leaders to combat the resurgence of sociopolitical violence against disenfranchised groups. LeaderSpring has invested in the extraordinary talent, dedication, and vision of such leaders for more than two decades. This March, LeaderSpring is bringing together change makers such as Alicia Garza, Co-Founder of Black Lives Matter, and Vanessa Daniel, Founder and Executive Director of Groundswell Fund, to discuss plans for rebuilding a new, more equitable America.
