BENEFITING: TRAINING FOR CHANGE

ORGANIZER: TRAINING FOR CHANGE

THE STORY:

TRAINING FOR CHANGE wrote -

 

The path to racial justice and social change requires a long-term commitment to change and support for grassroots movements on many different fronts. Our Judith C. Jones Fellowship for Trainers of Color is just one way that we're doing that -- and with great results!

Watch the video to the left to hear from some of our past and current fellows about how the Fellowship has impacted their work and their development as trainers!

This year’s Fellows are creating tools for organizing and action with immigrant rights activists, training organizers working on progressive issues in the south, and working with youth to develop leadership skills.

The Judith C. Jones Fellowship provides an opportunity for the Fellows to get monthly one-on-one mentorship and coaching, support to develop new tools and articles, and quarterly webinars on themes such as coalition building, intergenerational organizing, and writing as a liberation practice.

You Can Make a Difference, Will You Help Us?

Making a long-term investment in advancing the leadership of trainers and organizers of color working at the grassroots level to build power, skills, and knowledge in their communities is a priority for us. We need your support to raise $3,000 in the next six weeks to support our ability to offer this program again next year. Here's what your money supports:

  • $25 pays for the orientation materials for one Fellow

  • $50 pays for the development of one of our quarterly webinars
  • $200 provides a scholarship for a Fellow to attend one of our weekend-long workshops
