Diverse Leadership Consulting

We need a progressive movement in Rochester. What does that mean? We need to grow and foster progressive leadership in our community. There is a lack of diverse leadership in Rochester, MN and for us to become the great City we think we can be, we need leaders who look like us and will represent us through an equity lens. 

My commitment to advancing diverse leadership starts with:

  • Identifying leaders

  • Political organizing and campaign training

  • Fundraising

  • Speech Writing & Debate Prep

  • Public Policy research

  • Building your brand and platform

  • Building an online social media presence

  • Lifting up their public profile

  • Building a strong network of supporters and volunteers

  • Support Ranked Choice Voting

  • Run for elected offices at all levels

  • Continue to hold elected leaders accountable

  • Lift up the voices of marginalized and underserved communities

  • Voter registration drives and voter education

As a past candidate and with my years of outreach and organizing experience let me help you become the best leader you know you can become!


We work to ensure the community and local leaders have the knowledge, resources and opportunities to make a real change in society. We see our campaigns as collective efforts and tools for connecting and building a stronger Political Movement.


Driven by making an impact and inspiring change, our Political Movement is always expanding our understanding of contemporary issues and developing campaigns pushing for positive solutions. Learn more about our focus below.


Vangie Castro is dedicated to a few central causes which we believe are crucial in helping us achieve our goals. As a growing movement, we divide our time and efforts so that we can truly invest in each cause. Click HERE to learn more.
