The African American Leaders for Tomorrow Program started on July 20 at California State University at Dominguez Hills. Created and led by the California Legislative Black Caucus (CLBC), this annual event invites high achieving students from throughout California that have been hand selected to participate in the conference.

In partnership with CSU Dominguez Hills and the Mervyn Dymally African American Political and Economic Institute, this year’s program will include leadership training and students will participate in workshops on topics such as the legislative process and civic engagement.

Following last year’s virtual conference, 56 students will participate this year in mock legislative hearings, financial education lectures and mentorship opportunities over the next three days at the CSU Dominguez Hills campus.

The program will open with a welcome from CLBC Chair, Senator Steven Bradford, College President Thomas A. Parham, actress and comedian Kym Whitley, and California Secretary of State Dr. Shirley Weber. Students will also be able to learn from local leaders such as Carson Mayor Pro Tem Jawane Hilton, Councilman Cedric Hicks, Sr. and Debbie Allen of Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy, among others.

The African American Leaders for Tomorrow Program seeks to identify and help prepare the next generation to become community, business, government and non-profit leaders. The primary goal of the program is to increase the pool of African American leaders to address pressing issues of education, poverty, criminal justice and health. The CLBC seeks to address these issues by supporting, investing, and encouraging high achievement in our youth.

The CLBC advocates for the interests of Black Californians and improves their lives through economic, health, social, and educational opportunities. The CLBC will continue to provide youth opportunities to students that demonstrate exceptional academic achievement and community service.
