L.E.A.D. is an acronym for Leadership, Empowerment, Activism and Diversity. Founded in Winter 2016 by former ASUCD Senators Brendan Chang and Mikeala Tenner, it was a slate that was different than longer running the L.E.A.D. slate. This slate ran some controversial candidates and has proven that a slate should not run individuals from two sides of an issue.
