The Roundtable is now accepting applications for the Advocacy Fellowship Program. This is a part-time, contracted position for persons with lived experience navigating the criminal justice system and reentering the community. The Roundtable anticipates having two Fellowships in 2018.
The goals of the Fellowship program are two-fold:
(1) to enhance the capacity of the Roundtable to address the challenges of reentry and reintegration and support social justice in our community, and
(2) to develop the leadership capacity of the fellow by providing opportunities and mentorship to enhance their professional skills such as research, writing, and coordinating, planning, and leading activities.
The Fellows will jointly support the Reentry Advocacy Project (RAP) to engage formerly incarcerated men and women in the community and will serve as consumer advocates on various local and state task forces and initiatives.
