Racial Justice & Neighborhood Equity Fellowship
Summer 2023 Posting
Fellows work at the intersection of economic justice organizing and cooperative economics, with a focus on racial justice and neighborhood equity. The 2023 Fellow will work with New Economy Project staff and partner organizations, for example, on campaigns to advance community land trusts and social housing, worker co-ops, community-based financial co-ops, and public banking. Over the course of the summer, the Fellow will gain exposure to policy advocacy, community and popular education, coalition-building, participatory action research, direct action, and other strategies. The Fellow may also contribute to our GIS mapping, video series, and other media projects.
The Fellowship is a full-time 8-10 week program that pays $15 per hour to students who do not otherwise have access to internship funding. Priority will be given to NYC applicants.
Please note that the 2023 Fellowship will likely involve a combination of remote and in-person work, as conditions permit. Applicants must show proof of vaccination against COVID-19.
