Landecker Democracy Fellows' News
Keep up-to-date on the work of our Landecker Democracy Fellows
Landecker Democracy Fellows are change-makers based in the EU, UK, and USA with innovative ideas to form unique and lasting ties among communities that are increasingly drifting apart. Coming from diverse backgrounds, they build bridges through projects that enable our societies to unpack and address historic and contemporary systems of inequality. In partnership with the Alfred Landecker Foundation, we launched The Landecker Democracy Fellowship to support 30 young professionals and visionaries in realizing their project ideas that strengthen democracy in times of COVID-19. The following news items highlight the work our Fellows do in their respective communities.
