Justified Anger’s Leadership Institute

JA Leadership Institute

A program designed to prepare and connect emerging African American leaders


Through this cohort structure limited to 15 participants, it is envisioned that the capacity to carry out the goals and objectives of the Justified Anger “Our Madison Plan” will be built and implemented by transforming the face of leadership in our community and equipping African American leaders with the distinct tools needed to lead change in our Madison, in this current moment.


Participants work together to develop and implement community-based projects that they believe will address a community issue that they’ve collectively identified and determined to work on and is aligned with Our Madison Plan.


Our Leadership & Capacity Development programs include:

  • 6-month leadership development cohort for emerging African American leaders. This program includes six full-day (9a-4p) intensives, networking opportunities, mentoring, guided readings, and a social innovation project.
