The Impact of ALF

showcasing the story of ALF’s personal and community impact in the words of several Houston Senior Fellows

ALF's Value

ALF invites leaders to a yearlong Fellows Program in which they can engage in dialogue, differ, and build relationships.

ALF strengthens Fellows’ capacity to address public issues collaboratively.

ALF builds a strong leadership network to work for positive change in our community.

Thank you

to Nicole Cásarez (CJ 3), Attorney & Professor, University of St. Thomas, Alex Bunin (CJ 4), Harris County Public Defender, Kristin Guiney (CJ 5), Judge, 179th District Court, Harris County, and Anthony Graves for leading the November Second Friday Breakfast to talk about the lessons that we can all learn from Anthony Graves’ story about wrongful convictions and what we, as a community, can do differently in the future.
