#HeretoLeadCA is a storytelling initiative that celebrates the leadership, power and voice of  multigenerational, AAPI, African American, Latinx and Native American boys and men of color. Focusing on the themes of civic engagement, and highlighting those that are participating in the public or civic life of their community in order to improve conditions for themselves and others, the initiative tells stories of those who are working to shape policy, hold elected officials accountable and are demonstrating political power.

The initiative is a project of the California Funders for Boys and Men of Color, which is managed by The Center, in partnership with the Alliance for Boys and Men of Color.

This social media toolkit includes hashtags, posts and visuals you can use to share this initiative through your networks. If you have any questions, please contact heretolead@change-llc.com.
