Leading in COLOUR was founded on July 25, 2019 by Serisha Iyar - who serves as our Executive Director. After experiencing the rejection of racialized experiences in activist movements firsthand, Serisha decided to create a space where racialized leaders, particularly youth, could come together to learn and mobilize.
At Leading in COLOUR we equip young people with the necessary tools needed to conduct their advocacy efforts. We offer FREE training opportunities for racialized youth under 26 years old in the form of webinars, workshops, and events where they can develop their advocacy skill set.
We additionally work with partner organizations to provide programming for their constituents that is built on the frameworks of anti-oppression, anti-racism, intersectionality and decolonization. Learn More
