About this grant

The Leadership Development in Interethnic Relations (LDIR) initiative, developed by the Asian Pacific American Legal Center of Southern California, is a six-month, community-based leadership training program. Recently, Flint was identified as one of two replication sites for the pilot program. The program will be implemented through key community-based organizations, with coordination and additional support from community foundations.Funding will enable the Flint LDIR team to begin its first training program for Flint Area Citizens to End Racism (FACTER) team conveners and participants, and other individuals involved in anti-racism work throughout the community. Participants will explore topics such as racial identity development, privilege and power relations, group dynamics, and community organizing. Goals include providing ongoing training of facilitators; recruiting participants for the first six-month training; and implementing the first training cycle.The Community Foundation of Greater Flint was established in 1988 to serve the philanthropic needs of Genesee County.
