Back to News, Events & Leadership Insights from the Center thumbnail

From a very competitive pool of candidates, forty-two community leaders have been selected to participate in the Leadership Louisville Center’s Bingham Fellows Class of 2024. The topic for the 2024 Bingham Fellows is: Safer City: Creating a Thriving City for All, focused on preventing and reducing violence.

Beginning this week, the Bingham Fellows Class of 2024 will focus on the challenges of public safety and the social, cultural, and economic implications our community faces. In order to meaningfully impact this critical need, the Center is partnering with the Community Foundation of Louisville, which is continuing the legacy of the Greater Louisville Project (GLP) including the 2023 “Safer City By Design” report. The report presents data on the state of violence in Louisville, how it can be addressed using a public health approach, and funding challenges for current evidence-based and community-informed violence intervention and prevention strategies. This will provide a roadmap for the Bingham Fellows Class of 2024 to build a safer city and answer the call to create a thriving city for all. Throughout the program, participants will work in teams on projects that will be revealed to the public at its completion.
