Board of Directors

Impact Council

The JustLeadershipUSA Impact Council, a non-fiduciary body that participates, through informing and advising JLUSA President and staff, on all facets of JLUSA’s programs.

The Council responsibilities include researching and engaging in strategic partnership opportunities with stakeholders that have shared values and alignment with JLUSA; developing and supporting strategic relationships that are beneficial to JLUSA and the criminal legal system; capturing and sharing examples of strategic partnerships with policy, advocacy, and service entities that positively impact communities and advance national priorities.

While JLUSA ultimately is responsible for decisions about program operations, management, budget, and personnel decisions, the Council will serve as an important consultative body to the organization, including with respect to network expansion and program activities.
