Information Sessions for SDLA's 2023 Institute & Application

Learn about the San Diego Leadership Alliance Institute!

SDLA exists to build a net­work of pro­gres­sives with the skills and rela­tion­ships to pro­vide a focus on equity, equality and justice. 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 that runs January through June ever year. We bring together a diverse group of pro­gres­sive indi­vid­u­als and pro­vide them the tools needed to become lead­ers in San Diego.
