Title: 
NNAAC Transformative Leaders Fellowship

Organization: 
TAKE ON HATE in metro Detroit

Description:

The Campaign to TAKE ON HATE—led by the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), an ACCESS institution—challenges hate and bigotry toward all, and addresses the growing discrimination and persistent misconception of Arab and Muslim Americans, including refugees. TAKE ON HATE aims to achieve meaningful social change not only through public education, media and coalition building, but also by providing a platform for all communities to speak up and inspire real change that challenges institutional discrimination and protects the rights of our communities. 

As a representative of TAKE ON HATE, your primary role as our fellow is to support the local TAKE ON HATE projects under the supervision of the Advocacy and Engagement Specialist. This fellowship offers a stipend of $3,500 over nine months, and opportunity for college credits.

We are at risk of losing our rights, our voice and our sense of community. This is the time to #TakeOnHateWithYourVote and become advocates for change.
