New Group of Fellows Joins National Network Working to Advance Race Equity
As our country continues to grapple with persistent poverty and our long-standing legacy of structural racism and discrimination, we’re excited to announce that the fifth cohort of Racial Justice Training Institute Fellows has graduated. These 42 Fellows, all staff members at Legal Services NYC, were part of a pilot program designed to equip an entire organization to more effectively address racial equity as the stakes of state and local advocacy continue to grow. Following five months of online and in-person intensive training, they now join a national network of more than 200 advocates committed to advancing a coordinated racial justice advocacy agenda. In late June, members of all five cohorts will gather to explore ongoing advocacy and new opportunities to dismantle structural racism and advance race equity.
