This project requires a commitment of a minimum of 15 hours per month over four-and-a-half months (April-August). This will include multiple in-person meetings and trainings, and several will be day-long. Meals and local travel stipends will be provided, as well as professional interpretation and childcare when requested.
The dates of these meetings are set and final. Our meeting location is still being finalized, but they will take place in either Manhattan or Brooklyn, in a wheelchair accessible building with gender-neutral, accessible bathrooms available.
Please note: you will not be invited to become a Fellow until April 18th. Please reserve the evening of Thursday, April 25th for orientation, and the weekend of May 4th and 5th for the first two workshops
