WILD - Western Institute for Leadership Development


Strong leaders are made, not born. To that end, leadership development is a primary focus in all Western States Center programs. Strong leaders sustain solid organizations and thriving communities, creating a vibrant progressive movement. Our Leadership Development and Community Organizing work includes WILD, the Western Institute for Leadership Development, a year-long intensive training program for emerging organizers and activists.

This summer we kick off our 11th WILD Class: A program that cannot exist without your critical financial support! 

As a financial supporter of Western States Center, you help us coach and train the dedicated organizers behind successful wins, from immigrant rights to economic justice. Our movement building work crosses state lines, issues, and constituencies because we are stronger when we work together. A movement that includes multiple issues and identities ensures that we all advance collectively.
