NONPROFIT LEADERSHIP ALLIANCE AND THOUGHT INDUSTRIES ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP TO OFFER SOCIAL JUSTICE TRAINING
- Training will help learners explore the idea of social justice and how they can take action.

- The special offer comes from the partners’ shared interest in actively responding to the grassroots social movement for justice in our country.
Kansas City, Mo. – The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance and Thought Industries announced an online training to help Americans begin the conversation about social justice in our communities. What’s Fair? Exploring social justice in America will be available free of charge for 30 days, beginning October 15. The course is offered by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, powered by the Thought Industries customer training platform.
Learners will explore the meaning of social justice and what it looks like in our world, as well as learn how to advance key issues in their own organizations and communities. Darian Rodriguez Heyman, former executive director of Craigslist Foundation and Co-Founder of GenderSmart, is featured in the virtual session sharing his insights about the social justice movement happening in our world today.
“As the people in our communities continue to struggle with what is just and right, our most powerful tool for change is learning more,” said Susan Tomlinson Schmidt, CNP President and CEO of The Alliance. “We have to explore our own values and meanings for ideas like social justice and then consider what we can do to change what we think is wrong. Self awareness is the first step in a social justice journey.”
“Online learning can be a real force for positive change in the world, and we’re proud to be a part of it.” said Barry Kelly, CEO and Co-Founder of Thought Industries. “The work that Nonprofit Leadership Alliance is doing to provide access to social justice training will continue to have an impact for generations to come.”
