Meet the 2019 Public Leaders for Inclusion
About the Program
The Public Leaders for Inclusion Council (PLC) is a leadership development program which equips public servants in elected, appointed, and professional positions in local, county, and state government to explore practices and policies that challenge anti-Muslim bigotry and other forms of hate while building inclusion and social resilience in their communities.
Participating leaders serving in municipal, state, and county levels of government are provided with a range of professional development opportunities including:
Exclusive briefings on the religious and cultural landscape of their communities as well as on local incidents of hate and discrimination primarily targeting Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim from Arab, South Asian, Black, and Sikh communities as well as other groups.
Six monthly virtual seminars with leading anti-bigotry organizations and thought leaders.
A two-day D.C. Summit featuring networking opportunities with peer leaders, trainings and workshops with civic organizations at the forefront of building inclusion in public policy, and an exclusive tour of the Freedom Forum Institute’s Newseum on the National Mall.
Eligibility for funding to host a roundtable on inclusion and anti-bigotry efforts in their communities. Grantees also receive organizational and outreach support to convene these events and engage with community partners.
Opportunity to publish in forthcoming America Indivisible publications.
