Institute of Impacted Leaders
Launching in 2019, the Institute of Impacted leaders meets the central goal of Initiate Justice: to develop the leadership power of people impacted by incarceration.
The Institute will train 30 organizers from around CA on community organizing and public policy through a series of workshops and real world projects. These 30 organizers will then conduct trainings for Initiate Justice Inside Organizers at 18 CA state prisons in 2019, and the remaining 17 CA state prisons in 2020.
More details about this project and how to apply will be announced shortly.
Initiate Justice’s Co-Founder, Taina Vargas-Edmond, was awarded a $250,000 Fellowship from the Leading Edge Fund to launch this important initiative. Learn more about the Leading Edge Fellowship and the other dynamic leaders in Taina’s cohort.
