A Civic Engagement Series

In recent months at Coro, we’ve been inspired by the number of people contacting us with a renewed desire for civic engagement, especially on the local level.

In response, we’re mobilizing to host a series of Southern California civic engagement events called Leading Locally. Our goal is to help people of all ages and backgrounds connect the dots between interest and involvement to strengthen our civic fabric. We will cover topics ranging from joining a municipal board or commission to running for local office, and how political parties work at the local level.

Now more than ever, society needs more people who can work together across differences. Each year, Coro equips hundreds of emerging leaders nationally with the skills, knowledge, and networks to navigate complexity and create positive change wherever they are. Join us in Leading Locally.
