About NLC

New Leaders Council is the leading training program for progressive Millennials. NLC equips our leaders with the skills to run for office, manage campaigns, create start ups and networks of thought leaders.  NLC leaders take their activism back into their communities and workplaces to impact progressive change. 

NLC  has 48 chapters across the country in red and blue states with nearly 5,000 alumni. NLC is a true reflection of the Millennial generation with 57% of our NLC community as non-white and 53% women.  NLC is one of the few organizations focused on building a new governing coalition.
