400 advocacy leaders and growing

From the very beginning, 50CAN has bet big on harnessing the expertise of advocacy and politics within our network to develop the next generation of advocates and leaders. That’s why, since 2011, 50CAN has trained more than 400 aspiring advocacy leaders. This year, we’ll add more than 100 new advocates to that number through our 10 local and national leadership programs.
