Social Justice Accelerator
Through our Social Justice Accelerator, we bring regular classes of new fellows into the UJC fold, where they gain access to our resources, experiences, community, and infrastructure. This enables them to leap over the hurdles of being an early stage nonprofit and get directly to serving their constituency.
Applications are now open for our new SJA class. Click here to download.
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 3/1/2021. Applications should be mailed to SocialJusticeAccelerator [at] UrbanJustice.Org.
The SJA is designed to shepherd new and early-stage social justice organizations through the challenges of developing a well-functioning operation, by bringing them into the UJC community, where they will be mentored by expert leaders in the nonprofit and entrepreneurial fields. Individuals invited into the Accelerator will receive up to two years of concrete tools, support, and resources to help accelerate the growth of their initiatives.
The SJA grows out of our decades-long history of incubating and supporting organizations that stand with marginalized communities, fight for inclusive communities, and push for transformative system-level change.
