New Leaders Council (NLC) is a 501(c)(3) that works to recruit, train and promote the progressive political entrepreneurs of tomorrow — trendsetters, elected officials and civically-engaged leaders in business and industry who will shape the future landscape.
NLC recruits from outside traditional power structures and equips them with the skills necessary to be civic leaders in their communities and workplaces. Our mission is realized primarily through the NLC Institute; the nation’s premiere political entrepreneurship training program.
NLC graduates are an ever-expanding corps of diverse, new progressive leaders who are rising to the top of their respective fields and who work hard to dismantle oppressive systems and white supremacy. Hear their stories by listening to our podcast called The Zag, which features 12-15 minute episodes with alums from the Los Angeles chapter and other folks from chapters across the country.
NLC is creating an exciting network of individuals, highly-skilled in working together across sectors to improve the progressive infrastructure and ensure strong democracy, social justice, and equal opportunity.
