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 using an advisory committee and connections with community organizers in Westchester from as early as 2008.


Leader Profiles


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.
