The life of a nation is secure only while the nation is honest, truthful, and virtuous.
About THE Douglass Leadership Institute
The Douglass Leadership Institute (DLI) is a national education and public policy 501(c)(3) organization that works across the United States. DLI believes in the sanctity of human life, free market principles, and limited government. DLI was founded in 2015 by Dean Nelson, a minister with decades of experience in community and political activism.
DLI quickly developed a network of like-minded pastors and faith leaders across the nation and continues to provide them with uniquely tailored programs, information, and resources so that men and women of faith can be equipped to lead positive change in their communities and influence policy on the local, state, and national level.
Our Great Team
I am honored to support, endorse, and partner with the Douglass Leadership Institute. It’s work in criminal justice reform and strengthening the Black family, two issues of paramount importance to the liberation of African-Americans, is rooted in the Christian tradition of the great abolitionist Frederick Douglass.
