Creating healthy and just communities in places that have experienced chronic marginalization requires tapping the wisdom of those same communities and inviting their participation. To draw out this wisdom often requires development of individuals, organizations, systems and policies. In this webinar we learned how the Community Learning Exchange spread community wisdom about collective leadership for community change to communities across the United States.

The webinar leaders are co-founders of the national Community Learning Exchange. They have worked together for over a decade in building the capacity of communities to advance social change.

Francisco Guajardo is Associate Professor at the University of Texas Pan American and Executive Director of the Llano Grande Center for Research and Development in Elsa, Texas, a community along the Texas Mexican border.

Dale Nienow is Executive Director of the Center for Ethical Leadership in Seattle.

Miguel Guajardo is Associate Professor at Texas State University-San Marcos. He grew up on the Texas-Mexican border and works on issues of leadership and community development, education and community leadership. Guajardo is also a co-founder of Llano Grande.
