Leaders for Equality and Action in Dayton (LEAD)

Founded in 1992, Leaders for Equality and Action in Dayton (LEAD) is an organization comprised of a diverse array of Dayton-area congregations seeking to empower and prepare people of faith to work for a greater degree of justice in Montgomery County.  Concerned about inequities between area neighborhoods, LEAD created its Dayton Works Initiative in 2014 to explore the common ownership of productive assets that could anchor capital and jobs locally.  LEAD is now working on a two-year research project in collaboration with the City of Dayton and Cincinnati-based cooperatives to determine what types of cooperatives could succeed in the area and identify anchor institutions and funding to support the project.
