You are invited to join the September 30 quarterly conversation among American Promise’s Leadership Community (Board, Advisory Council, national finance council, donors, and special friends) with special guest National Advisory Council Member Lisa Lewin.
From the corruption and dysfunction of uncontrolled, concentrated money in elections, where political power is allocated based on wealth, to exclusion and racial injustice in voting rights, America faces a constitutional, political and social crisis of political inequality. An ideology of constitutional and political inequality is causing social unrest, government dysfunction, injustice and long-term, systemic corruption of our political system. Lisa Lewin will share her perspective, vision, and ideas for lasting solutions and action we need to take now— before the election— and beyond.
Please join us in this interactive and timely conversation about how we accelerate fundamental reform and justice with the affirmation of constitutional equality, equal voting and representation rights and racial equity.
Lisa Lewin is a strategist and operating executive with 25 years of experience leading and advising private, public, and nonprofit sector organizations. She is CEO of General Assembly, a pioneer in education and career transformation offering dynamic courses in data, design, business, technology and other high-demand skills.
Lisa serves on the boards of the Wikimedia Foundation, Bank Street College of Education, and the Leadership Now Project. She has also served on the board of the Center for Responsive Politics, a DC-based non-partisan research group and the host of OpenSecrets, journalism’s most trusted source of data and analysis on the effects of money on American politics. She received a BS from Washington University in St. Louis and an MBA with honors from Harvard Business School.
In advance of the call, we invite you to preview Lisa’s work with the Leadership Now Project, a group of business leaders interested in the health of our democracy and society striving to bring other businesses into the democracy reform movement with their Business for Racial Equity Pledge.
We look forward to having your voice in this important conversation!
