We ensure that state and local elected officials have the resources, assets, tools, and skills that are needed to become powerful and effective leaders. We highlight solutions to the most pressing problems and the best practices from the network. If you’re looking for policy guidance, inspiration, and more information, you’re in the right place.

Looking for trainings and webinars?

We regularly host programming and learning sessions designed to help local electeds and their staff dig in on key policy areas. 

Right now, we have an exciting learning series – called Policy & Strategy Primers – designed especially for new members and newly elected folks. 

Are you a LP member with a policy, strategy or communications question?
