What is Cultural Leadership?

Cultural Leadership is a youth education and leadership nonprofit organization. Based in St. Louis, we are dedicated to creating a more just community by developing area youth to be the next generation of civil rights leaders.

Our mission is to create a more just and equitable community by educating middle school, high school and college students to recognize and resolve issues of privilege and injustice through the lens of the African American and Jewish experience.

Race to Give STL Day – May 7, 2020

Run the The Race to End Racism on GiveSTL Day!

The Race to End Racism is our annual race event, held in conjunction with the Ferguson Twilight Run, that is dedicated to raising money to support Cultural Leadership’s mission of combating injustices. GiveSTL Day is an annual day of giving that benefits many St. Louis area nonprofit organizations, including Cultural Leadership!

This year, due to health concerns, the Ferguson Twilight Run has been made virtual, and participants can run whenever they are comfortable. We’re asking you all to run it on May 7 to emphasize the giving nature of our community and give back together on GiveSTL Day!
