Community Builders Leadership Councils
Grassroots Leadership at a National Level
MALA was founded with the guiding belief that strong societies are woven from diverse and cohesive communities. In pursuit of this principle, MALA has assembled Community Builders Councils in New York, Chicago, New Orleans, and Washington D.C. Our Community Builders Councils are made up of a diverse array of community leaders, innovators, and philanthropists from the civic, corporate, and grassroots sectors.
Together, our Community Builders help to discuss, scale, and inform MALA’s community impact. MALA relies on our Community Builders Councils to maximize our impact and to help understand the needs and dynamics of the communities we serve. Community Builders also have the opportunity to act as collaborators with MALA; from coordinating events, to sharing oral histories, to brainstorming new initiatives and projects, Community Builders are integrally involved in MALA’s mission.
