WILD: Class of 2016-2017

WILD, the Western Institute for Leadership Development, is a year-long intensive training program for emerging organizers and activists begun by Western States Center in 1994. WILD brings together a small group of leaders over the course of a year to build relationships between organizers in the region with a commitment to long term action for change. 

Presenting the 11th class of Western States Center’s organizing and analysis program - WILD! This class comes from a large geographic area, but shares a vision of how working for racial, gender and economic justice are critical to the survival of our planet and its people. Together they represent many organizing strategies, identities and experiences. We know they will learn as much from each other as from our training program and look forward to seeing them build and strengthen their own organizations and find new ways to work collaboratively.
