“In leadership, sometimes it’s hard, you don’t always get the win right away. You need to put your marker down and keep trying on these issues.” –Representative Kevin McCarty
We are grateful to CA Assemblymember Kevin McCarty for joining us for an online Leadership Seminar in which we discussed the importance of the long haul in civic engagement, pacing ourselves and not giving up on the first try.
Kevin McCarty was elected to the California State Assembly in 2014 and has made historic investments in public education including expanding access to preschool for low and middle income families, providing greater career technical education programs, and increasing student enrollment at our public colleges and universities.
Other legislative priorities include addressing housing affordability, fighting climate change, championing criminal justice reform, curbing gun violence, tackling the opioid crisis and advocating for the middle class.
ICL continues to turn on a dime, increasing our online classes and sessions during the stay-at-home order. We are bringing experts from around the world with feet-on-the-ground experience in organizing, civic engagement and public service together with our youth and staff.
This is an excellent time to study the relevance and importance of transforming ourselves to make change in the world.
