Are you interested in building a movement or organization but you're not sure how to do it? Do you have a community you want to bring together around a common issue, but you're not sure how to mobilize? Do you have an idea that will appeal to a lot of people, but you don't know how to find them or keep them interested? Then the Rising Organizers fellowship program might be exactly what you need to turn your concept into a powerful political project.
Rising Organizers’ free fellowship program is accepting applications from beginning organizers. The next cohort of 10-15 will meet for eight sessions over 16 weeks starting September 2018.
The fellowship is designed to allow new organizers to develop skills and strategies that will allow them to design their own organizing projects. This fellowship is open to all, and is particularly intended for those who have little to no organizing experience. If you do have organizing experience, please do apply, and note your experience in your application.
Remember, the deadline is August 20.
