We are launching our NEW Social Justice Fellowship Program! Our Social Justice Fellowship (SJF) program is designed to help (6) young Indigenous people ages 18-30 gain more insight on community engagement, policy change, climate adaptation, cultural preservation, and the protection of sacred sites. Our inaugural SJFs will be taking a closer look at uranium mining in McKinley County.

If you know of any young people willing to participate please give them my contact information and have them fill out the google form below.
We are also looking for community members, organizations, or local leaders to participate as presenters for the training program. Topics include: Policy change, environmental law, organizing 101, direct actions, uranium mining (history/personal experiences), environmental racism.**** Each presenter will receive a monetary incentive. All workshops will be scheduled on weekends starting August-November 2019.
