Creating healthy and just communities in places that have experienced chronic marginalization requires tapping the wisdom of those same communities and inviting their participation. To draw out this wisdom often requires development of individuals, organizations, systems and policies.  Join this webinar to learn how the Community Learning Exchange spreads community wisdom about collective leadership for community change to communities across the United States. 
The webinar leaders are co-founders of the national Community Learning Exchange.  They have worked together for over a decade in building the capacity of communities to advance social change.
