Levántate y Lucha Institute

Preparing the next generación of leaders

Jolt’s Levántate y Lucha Institute trains the next generation of community leaders and organizers in Texas. Through the development of core organizing skills and political education, participants will gain access to tools to build a movement of engaged Latinx voters and shift the political landscape of Texas for a more just democracy that serves all Texans.

Applications for the April Levántate y Lucha Institute will open on March 1st. The Institute will take place over the course of two Saturdays, so attendance on both days is necessary to complete the training.

2022 Virtual Program Dates:
  • April 2nd and April 9th, 10:00am – 3:30pm
