Inclusion, Diversity & Equity for All Leander promotes awareness, connection, and education to drive diversity and inclusion in Leander and eliminate discrimination based on race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or belief system, age, marital status, socio-economic status, disability, ethnicity, political affiliation, or other characteristics.


IDEAL members are working to build awareness about the diverse nature of Leander residents. Our amazing city is home to people of all ages, faiths, ethnicities, gender identities, abilities, and more, and we want more people to know we’re here and to feel welcome.

Love is never wrong


We seek events and opportunities to build community, strengthen relationships, and learn about one another. We’re planning IDEAL gatherings and co-sponsored events with other community partners. If you’d like us to join your event, please contact us today.


Beyond awareness and connection, we’re working to inform and educate Leander residents about events that impact us. From sharing local news items to offering insight on local policy, we work to offer context around what’s happening in our community.

In the news

Early voting has started in Leander’s 2024 General and Special Election. Elections are under way for City Council, appraisal districts and two propositions.

We’ve received requests for a voter guide like we’ve offered in previous elections, so here it is.

In the City of Leander, we endorse and recommend re-electing all four of the current incumbent candidates for office: Mayor Christine DeLisle, and Council Members in Place 2 Esme Mattke Longoria, Place 4 Na’Cole Thompson, and Place 6 Becki Ross.
