LEAD promotes transformative and systemic social justice by engaging multiple generations and diverse groups to integrate experience with innovation. Our programs are always focused on solutions to our social, political, and moral challenges. We do this, while also acknowledging the people who have and continue to lead the way.
It is therefore fitting that we present this Celebration of Mothers and Women who Stand for Justice and Peace, with Imani Wallace (Lyrical Faith), and a performance by the Valley Stream Central High School Chorus Freedom Quartet.
In these ever-changing times our team builds cross-generational bridges to inspire knowledge sharing, collective learning, intersectional networking, and personal and community development.
LEAD is Forward Focused
LEAD promotes transformative and systemic social justice change by engaging multiple generations and diverse groups in activities that integrate experience with innovation.
We are forming solutions to social, political and moral challenges.
LEAD was founded by my good friend, Dr. Janet Dewart Bell, whom I met some years ago when she was a young Washington Urban League 30 years and under board member. Over the years I have been a promoter of intergenerational learning and cooperation, so it is indeed gratifying that this notion is finally taking root because it is very much needed for such a time as this.
