The Harriet Tubman Fellowship

The Harriet Tubman Fellowship for Labor Trafficking Survivors will support survivor-leaders and prepare them for management-level positions. The Fellowship has a key goal: to increase trafficking survivors’ power and influence by equipping them with the skills to take up leadership roles in the non-profit, private, and public sectors. The ultimate vision is for trafficking survivors to lead anti-trafficking (and other non-profit) organizations and to assume senior positions in the public sector.

Harriet Tubman Fellows will participate in an in-person communications and policy advocacy training in Washington, D.C. They will also have access to resources to build their leadership and professional skills. The fellowship period is two years. Each lived-experience survivor fellow will benefit from:

  • A $10,000 tuition grant for formal training in the field of their choice
  • A monthly $500 stipend 
  • In-person Communications and Policy Advocacy Training in Washington, D.C. 
  • Access to mentoring, coaching, and career development opportunities

The Harriet Tubman Fellowship aims to invest in survivor leaders, so they can attain financial stability and lead in their communities.
