Today’s challenges require leadership that can bridge the divides in our society. Now more than ever, we must all act in big and small ways to address structural inequities and help people heal from the effects of racism. What’s needed are compassionate and capable leaders in and from our communities who can champion equity.
The WKKF Community Leadership Network brings together 80 inspiring and diverse leaders from across the United States and sovereign tribes, with cohorts based in Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico and New Orleans – the foundation’s priority places – along with one national cohort. Dr. Durryle Brooks is one of those fellows positioned to bring about racial healing and racial equity.
The WKKF Community Leadership Network is unique for its focus on:
1) advancing racial equity and racial healing in communities,
2) marshalling our collective resources and efforts to ensure all children have the opportunity to thrive, and
3) fostering a connected network of local leaders to drive transformational change.
