New Leaders Council

Looking Forward at NLC Retreat 2014



I could not be more proud of our New Leaders Council family.

This past weekend, we hosted our sixth annualNLC National Leadership Retreat, a two-day intensive session where NLC leadership, alumni, and Fellows gathered to plan the future of NLC and the progressive movement. Together, leaders from across the country focused on building progressive gains across America. These achievements span private sector advances that serve progressive goals, progress in state and local governments, and finally the incredible advance of NLC as we look to the next year of Institutes.

Anytime that you can get over 200 young progressive leaders in one room, you know the energy will be electric. When I reflect on the dedication I felt in that room, I know that NLC is the vehicle for change. And the members of the NLC community will be the ones to effect progressive change everywhere—from local schools and nonprofits all the way to breaking the paralysis in Washington.

Coming out of Sacramento, we now know that this is our moment.
