Child Defender Fellowship

The Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) is launching the Child Defender Fellowship to offer community leaders and activists an opportunity to build skills, influence local systems impacting children, and build communities that will further social justice to ensure all American children have a fair start and equal opportunities in their lifetime. From October 2017 to June 2018, fellows will gain critical knowledge on policy and legislation, learn about the history and tactics of nonviolent organizing, and practice using these tools in your community. Fellows will meet in a virtual learning space over the course of nine months to participate in approximately 20 sessions covering six core themes.
