The M.K. Gandhi Institute, in partnership with the Center for Dispute Settlement and Partners in Restorative Initiatives, is delighted to announce the establishment of two Transformative Justice Fellowships. This is a 2-year commitment (June 2021 – June 2023) for Monroe County residents of all ages who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). In addition to an annual budget of $1,000/year for learning-related expenses, participants will receive free access to training and events at all three agencies. Each will be assigned a BIPOC mentor to support their learning journey. Activities during the fellowship include participating in as many learning events as possible, meeting with mentors for support and accountability, and for completing a final project of their choice to demonstrate learning.

The deadline to apply for this program is May 22, 2021. Email kit@gandhiinstitute.org with questions about this opportunity.
