Arcus Capacity-Building Initiative Selects First Group of Leaders

Monday, September 2, 2013

The Arcus Foundation has announced the first participants in its LGBT Leadership Initiative (ALLI), which will provide resources to support leaders of the U.S. LGBT movement. The 2013 cohort -- which includes a former NFL player who publicly came out in 2012, the head of a national trans-led nonprofit that focuses on faith and spirituality, and the executive director of the It Gets Better Project -- represent a range of professional experiences and backgrounds and were selected through a rigorous process from among more than 80 applications.

"We're proud to support this group of inspiring and passionate individuals who've already demonstrated tremendous achievements in their work and contributions to social justice," said Kevin Jennings, Arcus' Executive Director. "Arcus intends to maximize the caliber, connectedness and impact of these leaders who are advancing LGBT equality in the U.S. by enhancing their skills and collaboration."
