Errin J. Vuley Fellows Program
Errin J. Vuley Fellows Program (EVFP) is a monthly leadership development program focused on reproductive justice. The program meets monthly from March to December. We will open applications in December for the 2020 program. You can preview the 2019 application here.
What we do
The Errin J Vuley Fellows Program (EVFP) is a leadership development program launched by Feminist Women’s Health Center in 2017. Errin J. Vuley was the first Community Engagement Coordinator (1997-1999) at the center. EVFP uses a reproductive justice framework to strengthen and build leadership skills and knowledge and especially honors Errin’s passions – abortion access, trans justice, and racial justice.
Monthly Events: Fellows meet monthly for interactive workshops that progress from expanding their knowledge and skills to opportunities to apply what they’ve learned and showcase their collaborative work. The program’s events are designed to accommodate the schedules of a diverse group, including those with work, school, and other scheduling needs.
Social Justice Networking: Facilitators vary for each monthly event and include community partners and social justice professionals. We are committed to ensuring that our fellows graduate with an expanded network of local social justice experts as well as with the knowledge of how to delve deeper into their areas of interest.
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. We hope this culminating encouragement will ‘”launch forward” these incredible social justice leaders.
