    NALP works in partnership with state-based organizations to recruit leaders from immigrant communities to participate in Ready to Lead, our core 2-day training program.

    This signature training curriculum identifies the immigrant experience as an asset in civic leadership.

    We train participants on messaging, targeting, and fundraising - and help them understand how to leverage their story and their community as assets to the political process.
