Rise Up: Confronting a Country at the Crossroads

Civil rights leader Al Sharpton talks with Alicia Garza, co-founder of Black Lives Matter, about his new book Rise Up and offers contemporary lessons for anyone who’s stood at the crossroads of their personal or political life, weighing their choices of how to proceed.

Join us live beginning in January for these live online workshops.

For more than 15 years, our Institute for Leadership Studies has hosted our Leadership Lecture Series, in partnership with Book Passage, on our San Rafael, California campus. Ticket revenue has helped fund a variety of Institute initiatives including our Leadership Learning Lab, the Leadership Minor, LeaderShape, and our Global Ambassador program.

This year, the COVID-19 virus makes it impossible to gather in person. But, we believe that our current moment requires — perhaps now more than ever — that we continue to bring people together, advocate for change, and improve conditions for us all.

Extending these leadership sessions in this way is something new and exciting for all of us. Particularly because of our current unprecedented challenges, we hope that you’ll do all you can to spread the word to include others who share our commitment to leadership and social change.
