On April 19th, our Executive Director, Danielle Atkinson and our Ally Relations Organizer, Jenny Byer, spread the word about our newest fellowship, “The Accomplice Academy”, in Detroit.
This training for White women guides them on how to follow the lead of women-of-color organizing in the 2018 election and beyond. These fellows will learn about the historical division between women-of-color and White women organizing, and how to move forward to build successful coalitions for activism and co-liberation. Receiving voter engagement techniques and coaching, participants will have actionable ways to follow the direction of women-of-color and create meaningful change. Some keynote collaborators include Confront White Womanhood, Allies for Change and 482Forward.
