The Structure of the Fellowship

This program will be a space to convene 20 young people, working on any part of justice work. It will center healing and self-actualization and expand on one's understanding of justice work.

Throughout the fellowship, young leaders will have space to challenge and learn from one another as well as grow together. The foundation of the program is rooted in Belonging, Equity, Accountability, Self-Actualization, and transformation, with a goal of bringing justice work to spaces that have never had it in the past and elevating the current work to an intersectional and equitable level.
