Anyone can see that there are problems plaguing our society. Few can see the solutions and opportunities presented in each of those obstacles. Leaders have the courage to tackle those issues head on with disciplined determination - no matter how difficult the road may be.

The Enlightened Thought Leaders has been created to initiate dialogue concerning the most pressing issues facing our communities with the greatest needs. Our mission for peace in our neighborhoods stems from a belief that in order for all lives to matter, black and brown lives must be heard, accepted and respected. Here are a few ways we hope to accomplish this:

    • Leaders meet regularly to unite our communities
    • Create strategies for empowering the underserved
    • Produce content to influence positive change
    • Host events promoting a culture of true diversity 
    • Lead the next generation of professionals and entrepreneurs
