The Dream Resource Center (DRC) is excited to launch the Immigrant Justice Fellowship, a California statewide fellowship that serves as a platform for immigrant youth to continue to be at the forefront of empowering and protecting immigrant communities. Now, more than ever, it is important to connect tools and resources to immigrant communities across the state as they face increased threats of detention and deportation. We are standing together to resist and ensure the wellbeing of immigrant communities and continue to build an immigrant rights movement grounded in justice, equity, inclusion, and power.
The Immigrant Justice Fellowship is an eight-month, part time fellowship across six regions in the state of California. Fellows will be placed in the following regions: Orange County, Inland Empire, Los Angeles, Central Valley, Silicon Valley, and Sacramento. Through the fellowship, fellows will work collectively to develop a plan of action that empowers and protects immigrant communities. Fellows will:
- Lead educational events in their local communities
- Engage in strategy sessions with local and regional entities
- Develop trainings to disseminate resources and empower immigrant communities
- Partner with local school districts, organizations, healthcare providers, government agencies, etc. to leverage resources and create opportunities to advance immigrant communities
Applications are now open for both host organizations and fellows!
