Lift Up a Leader!

Whether you have met Lourdes Ashley Hunter or not, the world is better because she exists. Lourdes is a fierce leader who needs our support right now.

On Friday, March 7, 2014, Lourdes culminated a week of transformation at a Rockwood Leadership Institute retreat. On that day, all 22 of her fellow Rockwood leaders committed our support to our friend who is experiencing instability in her life.

We're launching this page to marshal the resources to help lift up Lourdes as she continues pursuing her Masters in Public Administration, supporting her community and leading from her heart. 

As a black trans woman, Lourdes' work, her life and her commitment to her community -- it's revolutionary. That's why it's critical that we support her right now. 

Financial gifts to Lourdes will ensure that she can continue using her countless gifts to create extraordinary change. 

Our goal is to raise $10,000 by April 8. Every dollar matters.
