Wayfinder Foundation Announces Second Fellowship Cohort
Racial Justice NOW! is excited to announce that Zakiya Sankara-Jabar was chosen among women activist leaders as a new Community Activist Fellowship recipient. 15 fierce women will be joining their peers across the country by shining the light on issues in their communities, speaking out for new policies and systems that produce positive outcomes for children and families, and ultimately speaking truth to power in ways that only they can speak.
Twelve fellows from Washington DC and Oakland, California will lead community efforts focused on issues including from sexual harassment in the workplace, education reform, food justice, women’s cooperatives, and restorative justice, and community journalism to name a few. Additionally, 3 amazing leaders from across the country will also join the fellowship as a part of the Foundation’s newly established National Grants Program. This is the second set of investments for the Wayfinder's Community Activist Fellowship (CAF), and these 15 amazing women will be joining 13 women activist leaders in Los Angeles, California, and Indianapolis, IN who have been a part of the Fellowship program since May 2018.
“The Community Activist Fellowship is providing a way for our activists to begin a year of intense training and support to help them change the world in which we know it. By providing resources to individuals in marginalized communities, not only are we supporting their activism, we are freeing their voices to be heard, and strengthening their regard to continue to fight,” said Wayfinder’s chief program officer, Angela Jones Hackley.
