Named after the late civil rights leader and former Weingart Foundation Board Member, the John W. Mack Movement Building Fellows program strengthens the regional network of next-generation leaders. This program helps leaders new to their roles develop their adaptive leadership skills, hone their leadership stance, improve their ability to develop more effective campaign strategies, and better access resources that support them as leaders in movement organizations and networks, all through a racial justice and equity framework.
The John W. Mack Movement Building Fellows program aims to strengthen and develop current and emerging movement leaders to lead social and racial justice work that results in a more just and equitable Southern California region.
In summer 2019, twelve movement leaders new to their leadership roles were selected for the pilot cohort of the John W. Mack Movement Building Fellows program. To view the list of 2019 Fellows, see below. Applications are now open for the second cohort of Fellows.
