Social Justice Collective Fellowship

Developing Leaders with Lived Experience To Fight Social, Racial, and Economic Inequity

At a time when communities of color are fighting to have their voices heard, the SJC Fellowship is developing new leaders who have personal experience in the justice system — predominantly Black and Brown men and women. The Fellowship provides a 20-week series of trainings designed to educate, inspire, and train new leaders.
