Our Team


Our work would not be possible without the contributions of so many people.

Thank you to the sixty movement leaders who first wrote The Leap Manifesto by consensus in 2015. The founding members of our team who have since moved on to other projects. The advisors who have supported our organization’s development at every stage. And, our movement allies who inspire and drive our work every day.
