Generating ideas, connections, and action

 

 

The current political moment is increasingly fraught; exposing deep fractures in our society. While the roots of these fissures are old and embedded in the fabric of our country, the expression of these fractures feels quite new. Consequently, communities of color, queer and trans communities, as well as immigrant and other marginalized communities, are experiencing a growing sense of vulnerability; unsure of what new dangers exist on the horizon. While the changing times present new risks, it’s also a time of immense possibility. We hope to use this moment to strategize with one another and create new opportunities for transformative change.  

 

LLC will be hosting three regional Creating Space Conversations in Fall 2019 which will delve into this topic (Detroit, NYC, Bay Area, CA). We will explore the role leadership development can play in shifting power to advance justice and ushering in new innovative models that are responsive to changing conditions. We will also dedicate time to thinking about ways of structuring our leadership development work so that we are moving away from business as usual practices given that we are living in times that are in fact very unusual.
