NEA-NM Education Justice Fellowship

NEA-NM's Center for Community Schools, with the support of NEA National’s Center for Great Public Schools, launched the Education Justice Fellowship in 2021 to raise awareness around education justice issues and build the capacity of New Mexico educators to take action in support of the schools all our students deserve.
Education Justice Fellowship

The Education Justice Fellowship seeks to educate, energize, and empower education professionals from across New Mexico around racial and social justice issues in education through a year-long fellowship that includes collaboration with union and community thought leaders, peer-to-peer mentoring and collaboration, and an "incubator" environment in which fellows develop and realize an 'education justice project' in their school or community. 15 fellows graduated from Cohort One of the Fellowship in December 2021 and Cohort Two is currently underway with 16 fellows. Applications for Cohort Three of the Education Justice Fellowship are now open!
