About the Fellowship Successes

Building the power of health justice leaders to reshape the US health system

To date, the Fellowship has:

  • Established new partnerships and a shared network among Fellows
  • Expanded board, leadership, and partnerships for Fellow organizations
  • Launched an immigrant health academy
  • Built a culture of accountability, radical candor, and reflection
  • Developed overall capacity for Fellowships organizations, including relationships with the media

This includes open communication about topics like the role of stress in race equity and health justice work, and how unmanaged stress can lead to disengagement and burnout. We also emphasize ways to integrate healing justice, liberation, and healing circles into our Fellows’ important work and causes. The Fellowship offers socially relevant content and guest speakers who share experiences that are rooted in reflection as well as tangible, applicable takeaways — especially regarding race equity.
