Application Deadline: Fall 2012 Social Justice Leadership Institute
Apply here today!
Looking to make a meaningful impact in your community?
Want to improve your understanding of the social injustices around you every day?
Interested in developing ties with the diverse community of established and emerging social justice leaders in Minnesota?
Join us for the Headwaters Foundation for Justice’s Social Justice Leadership institute!
We’re looking for a group of emerging Twin Cities leaders who are interested in investing themselves in the community to better understand local injustices and bring about transformative change. Participants will be part of a group of approximately 25 people coming from diverse backgrounds to learn, reflect, and act together.
The institute is a four-month discovery process during which participants will work with each other to both understand and address social justice issues in our community. With a cohort of 25 people, you will 1) learn about social justice, 2) engage in a group fundraising project and 3) give the funds you raise to local social justice causes. At the end of four months you will leave with your own thoughtfully crafted framework for supporting and actively enaging with the social justice movement in Minnesota!
Examples of activities:
Participants are asked to commit to a total of 5 meetings--including one overnight retreat in September followed by monthly meetings (including dinner) from September - December 2012.
Social injustice affects every one, and, for almost 30 years, the Headwaters Foundation for Justice has been funding the people who fight injustice in your community. This is your chance to join a legacy of leaders, paving the way for social justice.
