Why is this important?
The Center for Leadership in Communities around Texas (CLCT)
Leading today. Influencing tomorrow.
Across the nation, the COVID-19 pandemic has communities in crisis. Communities are facing similar struggles and are looking for solutions. Communities are vastly in despair, and the effects of will continue to destroy vulnerable communities long after this pandemic is over. We must lead by working together to provide communities with the resources they need by sharing our experiences, knowledge, and resources.
Why is this important?
Communities thrive when everyone works together. We need to build food systems that make it easy and affordable to buy good food locally while strengthening under-served rural communities in Texas.
Located in Prairie View, TX, The Center for Leadership in Communities around Texas Co-op has the opportunity to connect leaders around the state to industry-leading research and industry experts at Prairie View A&M University.
We will combine the resources and skills of leaders to create solutions that will improve growth and prosperity in underserved rural communities that are resource depleted and lack healthy socio-economical food systems.
Our goal is to create equal opportunities to build strong, healthy, sustainable communities, provide much-needed goods and services, and organize campaigns around struggling food systems.
The Center for Communities around Texas Leadership Cooperative will train up new organizing fellows, bring them into a community of other fellows across the state, provide them with ongoing coaching, opportunities to learn, and the support needed to organize local efforts successfully.
