Leading For Change (LFC) is a non-profit, non-partisan training organization dedicated to developing the next generation of civic leaders in their quest to enhance the lives and opportunities in their communities. Through a cadre of programs, collaborations and partnerships with diverse community leaders and social justice organizations, we are working to build a foundation for and pipeline of civic leaders who are prepared to reshape Arizona for the betterment of its people – children, youth and adults alike.
Founded by Beth Meyer, former National State Operations Vice President of the Center for Progressive Leadership, in collaboration with community leaders and elected officials, Leading For Change was established to fill gaps in the training and preparation of emerging leaders planning to run for office, engaged in community organizing, developing policy and/or working within non-profit social justice organizations.
