Motivating Individual Leadership for Public Advancement (MILPA)

MILPA is a purpose-oriented mission driven collective committed to transforming organizations, institutions and systems by advocating for inner and social transformation. We achieve this by promoting relational versus transactional approaches within our overall work. MILPA incubates leadership through culturally competent professional development, networking, and entrepreneurship opportunities that build community power, promote upward mobility and focus on social change. Our approach is grounded in La Cultura Cura (culture cures) and promotes cultural healing, ethnic social media, civic engagement, and movement building. MILPA is part of the Healing-Informed Governing for Racial Equity Action Team, Justice Reform Action Team, and the Youth Leadership Team.
