The Dr. Josie R. Johnson Leadership Academy is a year-long leadership training program designed to meet the personal, cultural, civic and professional development needs of 15-20 intergenerational African American leaders while fostering their lifelong commitment to improving outcomes in the community. With sponsorship by the Bush Foundation and based on the Collective Impact model, JRJLA will leverage the time and talents of established African American leaders in business and philanthropy, government and politics, faith and religion, and community action. Under the mentorship these leaders, the JRJLA fellows actively engage in developing a united urban agenda, which will detail the critical issues in the African American community and their solutions.

ABOUT THE AFRICAN AMERICAN LEADERSHIP FORUM
Twin Cities African American Leadership Forum is united in the belief that we can do more together than apart. We recognize that in order to achieve enduring, positive change in our community, we need a truly transformative agenda. It is our goal to create a healthy place for all to prosper and it is our hope that you join us in our movement.
Above all else, the AALF’s universal goal is “a just and healthy society that works equally well for everyone.” Second to that, we strive for a vital and healthy African American community that uplifts the rest. We realize that our top goals cannot be realized without establishing a number of critically important target goals that help move us – and society – toward true social change.
