The Latino Center for Leadership Development (LCLD) is a non-partisan organization formed to create a pipeline of leaders and ideas equipped to address the challenges and opportunities of the Latino community. Our vision is carried out through various efforts including an intensive leadership academy, a policy institute, and numerous strategic initiatives. Through these efforts, the LCLD seeks to connect and effectively align policy, research, and practice for the immediate and long-term success of the Latino community.
