BERKELEY, CA: The Atlantic Fellows for Racial Equity (AFRE) program, to which the Haas Institute is one of several partners, has begun accepting applications to be a part of the 2019 cohort. Applications for the second year of this program can be accessed on AFRE's website here

The program seeks candidates who are interested in thinking outside the box about racial equity and justice, who have a track record of significant impact, and who want to learn from people from differing cultural, sectoral and academic backgrounds about how to affect change. You can learn more about the qualities that make a good candidate here.

The last day to apply for the 2019 program is January 31.

The AFRE program brings together accomplished social change leaders from South Africa and the United States to deepen their work to address structural racism. In 2018, AFRE supported a diverse group of 29 leaders who developed and shared strategies for ending anti-Black oppression and building the institutions, narratives and policies for a more equitable future.

A perspective discussing lessons the program learned from its inaugural year and plans for the 2019 program authored by Kavitha Mediratta, the founding executive director of AFRE, can be read here.
