Community Leadership Project
The Community Leadership Project (CLP) is a program that aims to recruit and empower local LGBTQ2SIA+ emerging leaders to create a lasting, positive, and collective impact in their communities, with the emphasis of uplifting Black, Brown, and Indigenous, and transgender leadership. The Community Leadership Project model uplifts and centers Popular Education as a tool for societal change. Our leadership model is revolutionary, with the belief that we don’t need to find or create leaders. Our leaders are already here, we just have to foster an affirming environment that lets them lead.
