We believe that investing in women and women-led activism is one of the most powerful levers we have to change the trajectory of low-income communities. The Coalition supports community-based activism and grassroots leadership development through a number of avenues, all of which support citizens in addressing classism, racism, and marginalization in their own lives and communities. Too often, their voices are ignored in the traditional, top-down structures of power. Ultimately, we seek to build a statewide network of women activists who are disrupting the current power structures and realizing change in their communities.
Launched in 2019, She Leads: Community Activist Fellowship seeks to build a statewide network of women activists who are disrupting the current power structures and realizing change in their communities. Our grantmaking philosophy is simple: Invest in women of color who are working to build their communities through activism, and we change the course of life for under-resourced communities, families, children, and cities, and ultimately the state of Louisiana.
