The San Diego Lead­er­ship Alliance (SDLA) is a non­par­ti­san non­profit formed to develop San Diego's pro­gres­sive leadership.

Our Mis­sion:

The mis­sion of the San Diego Lead­er­ship Alliance is to develop the next gen­er­a­tion of pro­gres­sive lead­ers by pro­vid­ing the skills, rela­tion­ships and oppor­tu­ni­ties to build a sus­tain­able pro­gres­sive infra­struc­ture in the San Diego region.

Our Pro­gres­sive Values:

We believe soci­ety should work for every­one, not just some.
We believe gov­ern­ment can and should be a force for good.
We believe in ele­vat­ing every­one to a posi­tion of equal treat­ment, regard­less of class, race, eth­nic­ity, con­science, gender, sex­ual ori­entation, gen­der expres­sion, national ori­gin, abil­ity, or his­tory of disenfranchisement.

Our Work:

SDLA exists to build out a net­work of pro­gres­sives with the skills and rela­tion­ships to pro­vide a coun­ter­point to the sta­tus quo. SDLA is not just about devel­op­ing can­di­dates to run for pub­lic office. Polit­i­cal change includes elected offi­cials, but it also requires sup­port­ers from the busi­ness, non­prof­it, and other sectors.

SDLA's bench­mark pro­gram is our lead­er­ship insti­tute. We bring together a diverse group of pro­gres­sive indi­vid­u­als and pro­vide them the tools needed to become lead­ers in San Diego. For more infor­ma­tion on the insti­tute please visit our pro­gram pages.

SDLA was for­merly affil­i­ated with the national non profit the New Lead­ers Council.
