“NLC is changing the landscape of San Antonio and beyond. We are building power among the leaders closest to their communities and uplifting their work and their voices. By investing in leaders, right here in our city, we are ensuring that we can build a democracy that is equitable, just, and works for everyone.
“NLC enabled me to utilize my gifts in a way that uplifts my community and meet people where they are. They showed me that all I am and have is all I need to strive toward a more equitable world and place I can feel proud to call HOME.”
“NLC gave me the opportunity to meet like-hearted people who create positive change within the community. Through NLC, I gained invaluable skills that I will continue using to inspire change in others. My NLC family will continue to grow and I am so honored to serve along these change agents.”
