Please join us in congratulating our first graduating class from the 2019 Civil Survival Leadership in Advocacy Fellowship program!

In July 2019, we launched our inaugural fellowship program to invest and develop skills in community leaders who were selected to participate. Over 20 of our leaders attended six day-long training sessions and received certificates on December 15th, 2019. We hope to increase our capacity and repeat this successful program in 2020. Our fellows developed skills in the following areas:

• Race equity and anti-oppression in mass incarceration • Breakthrough Action Leadership ® • Leadership in legislative advocacy • Criminal justice training • The budget process and narrative storytelling • The opportunities of conflict •

We are so proud of our leaders and we look forward to seeing the incredible work they can do for our community in legislative advocacy. This spring, we hope to double the size of our leadership program and will post updates to applications for our 2020 program on our website.
