Youth and Parent Leadership Development

Advancing Justice - LA works with racially diverse youth in Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley through the school-based LDIR program, an in-school class for high school students, as well as through after-school programs. Advancing Justice - LA also provides multilingual parent training programs for Asian and Latino immigrants, to help them advocate for their children and their community.

Leadership Development in Interethnic Relations

The Leadership Development in Interethnic Relations (LDIR) program challenges participants to understand and negotiate the boundaries that separate them from each other, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and class. LDIR currently offers “LDIRs in Health” for those working in the health sector and “LDIRship for Social Change” for Central Valley community leaders. For more information, go to
