We need your courage, perspectives, and projects to help shape the future of democracy.
About the Fellowship
The Landecker Democracy Fellowship was launched in 2020 in partnership with the Alfred Landecker Foundation. As an incubator for democracy in the digital age, the Landecker Foundation promotes the development of open, democratic, and discrimination-free societies via innovative and disruptive means.
Each year, the Landecker Fellowship unites changemakers who possess diverse identities and ideas, yet are bound by a shared commitment to democratic values. At the core of our Fellowship is a dedication to peer-to-peer learning and a strong sense of community. This is why we actively seek out passionate, hands-on, and collaborative Fellows.
Working alongside their cohort teammates, Landecker Fellows spend one year implementing their projects. Each Fellow creates a new project or expands the work of an existing one with our team’s financial support and guidance and the broader Humanity in Action network (2700+ Humanity in Action Fellows and Senior Fellows).
In addition to creating their projects, Landecker Fellows take part in a virtual training program and two Action Academies (one virtual and one in-person conference) throughout the Fellowship year.
Through the design and execution of projects that have a visible and tangible impact, our Fellows serve as powerful inspirations, demonstrating the capacity for individuals to drive meaningful change.Our alumni are the vibrant heart of the Humanity in Action organization. Beyond their Fellowship involvements, they remain engaged with each other and the Humanity in Action teams. To advance our common mission, we offer tailored educational, professional, and entrepreneurial opportunities to all our alumni.
