Congratulations to the first cohort of Atlantic Fellows for Racial Equity, which includes criminal justice reform advocate, Marlon Peterson. Hosted at Columbia University, the fellowship will study the causes of and develop solutions to anti-black racism.

 

Twenty-nine advocates, organizers and artists selected from across the U.S. and South Africa to tackle anti-Black racism and white supremacy

NEW YORK, NY — The Atlantic Fellows for Racial Equity (AFRE) named its first cohort of 29 Atlantic Fellows to begin a year-long program, expanding their work to challenge racism in the U.S. and South Africa and disrupt the rise of white nationalism and supremacy.

The inaugural group is composed of activists, lawyers, artists, scholars, advocates and other leaders, all accomplished in their work to end white supremacy and racism in the United States and South Africa. The cohort is the first of 10 in a 10-year, $60-million program centered on exposing and ending racial discrimination and violence that dehumanize Black people and, ultimately, harm all people.
