The Defund Fellowship is a 12 month, year-long fellowship working on the DC campaign to defund police and secure investments in meeting community needs and building community safety strategies. This fellowship will be hosted by DC Working Families Party (DCWFP).
DCWFP seeks a fellow who can engage, mobilize and activate DCWFP members, activists, coalition partners, and community members impacted by the prison industrial complex to advance our strategic goals. This fellow will push the Defund Metropolitan Police Department campaign to the next level, more effectively coordinate across organizations, communities, and movements, and build nationally networked local organizing efforts to achieve genuine and lasting safety in communities.
The Defund Fellowship is sponsored by the Community Resource Hub for Safety and Accountability, which works to ensure all people have access to resources and tools to advocate for systems change and accountability in law enforcement.
