We are part of an international network of 291 Leagues comprised of over 150,000 women in Canada, Mexico, the U.K., and the U.S. engaged in similar work in each of our communities. This provides us with a unique and powerful depth of knowledge and resourcefulness to bring about the changes we strive to accomplish.

Rising Arts Leaders San Diego

Rising Arts Leaders San Diego was a program of The San Diego Foundation’s Arts & Culture Working Group, produced in partnership with the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and in affiliation with the Americans for the Arts Emerging Leaders Network. RALSD is fiscally sponsored by Arts for Learning San Diego, an Affiliate of Young Audiences and is part of an emergent network of up and coming arts leaders throughout California supported by the Center for Cultural Innovation. Originally funded through The James Irvine Foundation RALSD has received a grant from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to continue programming into 2019. There are currently four active networks statewide: San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley. Though each network is structured differently to reflect the nuances of its region, the networks meet in an effort to strengthen the state’s emerging leaders’ representation.

RALSD serves early and mid-career nonprofit arts and culture administrators with programs that support individual professional and leadership development.

ACLU NextGen of San Diego & Imperial Counties

The ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties believes that people should have equal opportunity to participate, prosper and reach their full potential in our society.

We fight for this fundamental value on multiple fronts: from defending individuals’ civil rights and freedoms, to advocating for government accountability, to building power in marginalized communities to achieve meaningful social change.
