Amazigh writer wins prestigious fellowship



Amazigh World News, a platform for news and information about Indigenous Amazigh peoples, wrote an article celebrating Noufel Bouzeboudja’s Landecker Fellowship. Noufel is also a writer for this news outlet that was made for and about this indigenous group from North and West Africa. His Fellowship project #PremierLigne aims to disseminate stories from the banlieues in the outskirts of Paris. These areas are often inhabited by immigrant communities who are stereotyped by the larger French population as violent and destitute. Noufel’s project will share the stories of front line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic and draw parallels between these workers and those who worked on reconstruction of France after World War II.

Noufel is one of thirty Alfred Landecker fellows. This fellowship, a collaboration between the Alfred Landecker Foundation and Humanity in Action, was created to strengthen a new generation of leaders whose approaches to political and social challenges can become catalysts for democratic placemaking and community building.
