The Leadership Conference Education Fund is the education arm of the left-wing Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. The LCCHR is a network of more than 200 left-wing organizations that promotes left-wing views on issues such as voting access, civil rights, LGBT interests, education policy, and other issues. 
The LCEF was founded in 1969 as the education arm for the LCCHR. The organization works with the LCCHR’s member organizations to promote its viewpoints to state, local, and federal governments. The LCEF serves as the focal point of a coalition to promote its views and expand civil rights. 
Leadership Conference Education Fund has three major issue priorities: democracy, justice, and inclusion and opportunity.
Under its democracy priority, the LCEF campaigned to get as many people counted as possible under the 2020 Census. It established the Census Counts Campaign to coordinate LCCHR member organizations to count as many people as possible. The LCEF is involved in campaigns to put left-wing judges on the federal courts. The LCEF is also working on voting rights issues and undermining voter fraud protections such as voter identification. 
Under its justice priority, the LCEF works on immigration-related issues. The organization is opposed to most enforcement of immigration laws. The organization is also working on criminal justice policies, championing putting fewer people in jail and prison. The LCEF is also working on police reform. It has created the “New Era of Public Safety” initiative which is an outline of reducing police presence. 
Under its inclusion and opportunity priority, the organization fights for expanding the government’s role in the economy. It also works to change the education policy and to increase government spending on education. The LCEF is also increasing its initiative to combat hate crimes and encourage local law enforcement agencies to report hate crimes to the FBI. It created the Communities Against Hate initiative with the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. The LCEF works to create communications and internet policies that promote equity. It also works to expand demographic diversity in media and access to broadband internet. 
Carolyn Osolinik serves as the chair of the board of directors. She is a partner at Correia and Osolinik. 
According to the 2018 Form 990, LCEF received $27.1 million and spent $17.7 million. 
The largest single expenditure was for a voting rights campaign called All Voting Is Local. The group spent $2.2 million on that campaign.
