In this week's weekly briefing: The New Leader pieces this week, alumni highlights, NLC Alumni Engagement Series opportunities, and more.
Tuesday night saw Election runoff victories for New Leaders Council alumni in Georgia and New Jersey. These three individuals join the ranks of 21 New Leaders Council community members who won in November.
As the dust settles on the 2017 election season, the New Leaders Council community has much to celebrate. NLC alumni and advisory board members won up and down the ballot. Many of our community members who took it upon themselves to canvass, phone bank and run campaigns for progressive candidates across the country were victorious.
Progressives made big strides across the country last night with voters clearly turning their backs on hateful and divisive rhetoric and policies, and turning to those with positive messages of inclusion and progress. We're proud of the many individuals in our community who stepped up and ran for office and for those who put in their blood, sweat and tears to get progressives elected.
The 2018 NLC Institute application has closed, NLC added a new national honorary co-chair, and our alumni keep making waves in their communities. The NLC network continues to believe, change and inspire, and we are thrilled to keep you up-to-date on our work.
