Ways To Support

At JustLeadershipUSA, we know that the people closest to the problem are also closest to the solution, but often farthest away from resources and power. That’s why we are on a mission to educate, elevate and empower the people and communities most impacted by systemic injustice to drive meaningful and lasting policy reform. 

But we can’t do it alone.
