We Are All Brooklyn Fellowship Against Hate (WAABFAH)

The We are All Brooklyn Fellowship Against Hate 

The We Are All Brooklyn Fellowship Against Hate is an integral part of our response to the challenge of rising hate in our respective neighborhoods, boroughs, and city. This initiative is in its second year and is created in partnership with The Center for Community Leadership at the Jewish Community Relations Council of NY and the Mayor’s Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes, as part of the Partners Against the Hate (PATH-Forward) initiative.

We welcome applicants who serve in mid- to senior- level roles from any Brooklyn based nonprofit organizations that serve as messengers and partners within their respective communities to combat and respond to bias-motivated violence.

This in-person fellowship will meet eight times between January and June on Tuesday mornings between 9:00am-1:00pm and will include a subsidized overnight trip to DC as well as seed money for programming designed to bring communities together.

Sessions include:

  • Storytelling workshops in which fellows will be able learn how to better build relationships across communities
  • Training on how to facilitate difficult conversations, led by the Anti-Defamation League
  • Guidance by the New York City Office of Prevention of Hate Crime on how to identify and prevent acts of hate
  • Intergenerational approaches to coalition building and community organizing 
  • Opportunities to meet and learn from community leaders from all over New York City
