The ACLU of Georgia-Humanity in Action Fellowship provides Senior Fellows the opportunity to work with the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia for 6 to 14 months. The Fellowship is an opportunity for Senior Fellows to gain exposure and contribute to policy research, community organizing, and advocacy.
About the ACLU of Georgia

Through litigation, lobbying, and communications, the ACLU of Georgia works to preserve and enhance the rights of all citizens of Georgia without political partisanship. Foremost among these rights are freedom of speech and religion, the right to equal treatment under law, and the right to privacy.

Atlanta: Resettled Refugees and the American South
Over the past 10 years, thousands of refugees have immigrated to a small town known as Clarkston in DeKalb County, Georgia, only 20 minutes outside of Atlanta, my home town, making it “the most diverse square mile in America” according to The New York Times.
“My time as a Fellow at the ACLU of Georgia has been one of the best experiences of my career. As an academic, my main goal is to make the work I produce in the academy accessible and impactful to the communities I write about. Humanity in Action provided me with an opportunity to connect my work on the history of the carceral state to the policy level through this Fellowship.”
