The Elias Grassroots Activist Support 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 using an advisory committee and associations with community organizers in the Hudson Valley from as early as 2008.

Enlarging the Pool of Activists

Elias is enlarging the pool and creating a pipeline of emerging activists by consulting active leaders in the community who will nominate members in their network.
