The Environmental Leadership Initiative (ELI) offers aspiring leaders a transformative experience in environmental justice through training, mentorship, and community-building.

Download Overview

For years, Liberty Hill has provided critical training and capacity building to community activists leading grassroots organizing for Environmental Justice in L.A. We’re excited to announce the expansion of this work through our new Environmental Leadership Initiative (ELI)—a fellowship program that empowers and offers grassroots community leaders from across California a transformative experience in environmental justice!

This program is hosted by Liberty Hill Foundation, through the generous support and investment from the Hewlett Foundation and Packard Foundation. We work in partnership with the community-based Advisory Board who have helped shape this initiative.
