United Women in Faith announce Climate Action Fellowship for BIPOC youth

May 13, 2022

United Women in Faith is excited to announce the 2022 Faithful Climate Action Fellowship. This is a wondeful opportunity for young Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to grow as climate activists and connect with other young people of faith working on climate issues across the country. 
If you are not a young person or do not meet other application criteria, would you help spread the word and encourage young people in your network to apply?

Are you or do you know a young person who is concerned about the climate crisis? Join us in exploring how our faith traditions can support and guide our climate activism. Young Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (18-26) in the United States (including U.S. territories) who identify as Christian, Jewish, or Muslim are invited to apply for the Faithful Climate Action Fellowship. Visit the website to learn more and submit an application. Preferred application deadline is May 23, 2022. 

Fellows will engage in seven weeks of evening training to hone climate action skills. Weekly interactive webinars from July 7 through August 18, 2022 will provide a chance to meet young faith and climate leaders across the country. Fellows are also responsible for doing a project ranging from op-eds to artistic expression to delivering a message to their house of worship/faith community, and participate in faith-based resource development.

This is a time commitment of only 2-3 hours per week plus time needed to complete a project, and is designed to fit with full-time employment or school work. A $500 stipend will be provided upon successful completion of the fellowship. 
The Faithful Climate Action Fellowship is a project of Creation Justice Ministries, Dayenu, Green Faith, Interfaith Power & Light (DC.MD.NoVA), United Women in Faith, and Wisconsin Green Muslims and is supported by a U.S. Climate Action Network collaborative grant.
Grace and peace,
