Leadership Advocacy Module
Educate – Engage – Empower
This module intentionally focuses on bringing awareness of the social inequities that exist in our society and the advocacy and changes needed.
The inaugural cohort had the opportunity to visit leaders in Washington DC with their instructor, Elias Alcantara, the former Associate Director of Intergovernmental Affairs under the Obama Administration, to meet lobbyists and people advocating for criminal justice reform.
Their trip included visits to Senator Kamal Harris’s office, the Zuckerberg Foundation, the Obama Foundation, and the YWCA. They also had dinner with Ambassador Mari Carmen Aponte who shared the significance of persistence and striving for better.
This experiential program is open to all Lehman students. Register here.
