In addition to taking action with Bend the Arc, Fellows learn about the history and current context of the organizing and issue areas they work on. Fellows unpack the multiple systems of oppression that shape our society, and explore and experience approaches to making change, with an emphasis on organizing.
Jeremiah Fellows will also create community with one another. Fellows create a supportive peer group that affirms each other, but also goes beyond affirmation to challenge and support each others’ growth. Through the experience of being supported and challenged in community, and articulating, developing and acting on shared values, Fellows will come out of the program as stronger leaders and more effective agents for change.
