Tzedek Social Justice Fellows: Learning, Growing, and Leading in Western North Carolina since 2012

The Tzedek Social Justice Fellowship (TSJF) is a unique one-year paid career and community development opportunity. It is geared toward emerging nonprofit and social justice leaders interested in becoming resilient agents of change in their communities. The Tzedek program allows Fellows to explore how discrimination based on class, gender, sexuality, faith traditions, and ethnicity intersect in our lives, community, and society. While exploring these issues each fellow develops the skills needed to become strong and effective community activists, allies, and leaders. Learn More!
