We Are All Brooklyn Fellowship Against Hate (WAABFAH)

The We are All Brooklyn Fellowship Against Hate 

The We Are All Brooklyn Fellowship Against Hate (WAABFAH) 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 third year and is created in partnership with The Center for Shared Society 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 seven times between January and June on Wednesday mornings between 9:00am-1:00pm and will include a subsidized trip to DC as well as seed money for programming designed to bring communities together.

Sessions include:

  • De-escalation training led by the New York State Division of Human Rights
  • A workshop led by the Kings County DA’s office on how to identify and prevent acts of hate
  • Coalition building exercises aimed at building a stronger Brooklyn community
  • Panel conversations and networking opportunities with borough leaders
  • Museum visits, neighborhood tours, and a Broadway show

In order to truly understand and gain appreciation for the diversity of Brooklyn, each session will be held in a different neighborhood – all locations will be easily accessible by public transit.
