|Dear Community Partners,
Liberty Hill Foundation is excited to announce the launch of our new state-wide fellowship program for Environmental Justice leaders—the Environmental Leadership Initiative (ELI).
Applications to apply for the two-year Environmental Leadership Initiative fellowship program will be accepted starting on Monday, September 11, 2023, until Wednesday, October 4, 2023. We welcome applications from individuals who are engaged in environmental movement work across the state of California and who are interested in building networks and deepening their commitment to environmental justice.
The Environmental Leadership Initiative will offer aspiring leaders a transformative experience in Environmental Justice and empower individuals from diverse backgrounds who are passionate about driving positive change in their communities.
|Through a combination of learning modules, collaborative projects, mentorship, and networking opportunities, program participants will deepen their understanding of environmental justice principles, engage in collective movement-building work, and develop the skills necessary to create lasting impact.
This program is hosted by Liberty Hill Foundation, through the generous support and investment from the Hewlett Foundation and Packard Foundation. We work in partnership with the community-based Advisory Board who have helped shape this initiative.
