The Elias Grassroots Leadership Development Program
Our goal is to strengthen and build the social justice movement by developing potential leaders.
In 2015 Elias began a program focused on the development of emerging grassroots leaders. The program has identified leaders, all of whom are known to Elias from the foundation’s work with community organizers in Westchester from as early as 2008. There is no longer a restricted geographical focus.
Enlarging the Pool of Leaders
Elias is enlarging the pool and creating a pipeline of emerging leaders by consulting activists and leaders in the community who will nominate members in their network.
