Next Generation Leadership Institute

One of the keys to a securing a future of Reproductive Justice for all women, femmes, and girls is instilling the skills of advocacy and organizing into the women of the coming generation. The Next Generation Leadership Institute is a paid two-year fellowship that serves as a formal pipeline for training young Black women, of all identities, from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) to become Reproductive Justice leaders. The Next Generation Leadership Institute trains young people in Reproductive Justice, advocacy, leadership skill building, strategic communications, effective organizing, and the public policy process.
