Errin J. Vuley was the Feminist Women’s Health Center’s first Community Engagement Coordinator (1997-1999); she inspired everyone she met with her passionate devotion to social justice, particularly in the areas of abortion access, trans justice, and racial justice.

The Errin J. Vuley Fellows Program (EVFP) seeks to honor Errin’s memory through a leadership development pipeline for reproductive, gender, and racial justice. Check out the 2017 Errin J. Vuley Fellows Yearbook. Interested in being a Fellow? See our requirements below and apply TODAY! 

 

Requirements:

The program's flexibility is ideal for work and school schedules with a ten hour average time commitment per month. Over ten months, fellows will attend one Saturday workshop per month and have the option of participating in supplemental activities and events.

Each fellow will also complete an individual or group project, and fellows will focus on at least one self-designated skill set (i.e, policy, organizing, development, messaging and communications, and programming).

 

What to Expect:

  • Monthly Events: Workshops and other action-based events to equip fellows with the necessary skills, content knowledge, and strategies through the lenses of reproductive, gender, and racial justice. The program’s events are primarily scheduled once a month on a Saturday, in the hopes of accommodating the schedules of a diverse group, including those with work, school, families, and other scheduling needs.
  • Social Justice Networking: Facilitators vary for each monthly event and incorporate community partners and seasoned activists to ensure fellows graduate with an expanded network and knowledge of where to plug deeper into the movements that inspire them.
  • Launch Forward Awards: Each graduating fellow will receive a Launch Forward award uniquely tailored to their passions and interests. The award is designed to provide a modest “starter kit” with small funding or tools to complete a project or launch a social justice initiative. Indeed, we hope this culminating encouragement will ‘”launch forward” social justice leaders.

APPLY for the 2018 Class of Errin J. Vuley Felllows between January 6, 2018 and February 5, 2018.
