Headwaters Foundation for Justice launching Social Justice Leadership Institute: Who? Were looking for a group of emerging Twin Cities leaders who are interested in investing themselves in the community to better understand local injustices and bring about transformative change. Participants will be part of a group of approximately 25 people coming from diverse backgrounds to learn, reflect, and act together. What? The institute is a nine-month discovery process during which participants will work with each other to both understand and address social injustice. With a cohort of 25 people, you will 1) learn about social justice, 2) engage in a group fundraising project and 3) research and give the funds you raise to local social justice causes. At the end of nine months you will leave with your own thoughtfully crafted framework for supporting and actively enaging with the social justice movement in Minnesota!
