Leadership Center for Democracy and Social Justice

Two schools at the City University of New York—the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership at City College of New York and the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies—seek to establish a national center to recruit, develop and connect diverse leaders for social change who can imagine and implement visionary solutions for the enormous challenges we face in the 21st century. The new Leadership Center for Democracy and Social Justice (fiscal sponsor: Foundation for City College) will invest in the abundant talent of an emerging generation of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) leaders and train early-career leaders in social justice traditions, ideology, literature and history in order to take power in all sectors.
