About this grant

Working closely with leaders in more than a dozen states, the Leadership Conference Education Fund has built a state coalition infrastructure providing grassroots organizations with the opportunity to convene and work together to educate and mobilize the public around important civil rights issues such as judicial independence, immigration and other concerns. This grant will enable the fund to provide continued technical assistance to these state-based coalitions, including programmatic and legal training for community leaders; media and message development training for community leaders; maintaining and updating tools and resources available to grassroots and state-level organizations and coalitions, including a Web site; and convening coalition leaders from more than a dozen states to share ideas and best practices.
