Welcome to the Woke Vote Organizing Fellowship
We are building a movement for equity and justice. All across the country, fellows will be soldiers in the army to fight mass incarceration, voter suppression and urban gun violence. This fellowship program will last 8 weeks, covering June 10 - August 5.
Woke Vote fellows will be trained across 8 target areas:
Social Media/Digital Organizing
Millennial / Campus Outreach
Data / Research
Turnout Models / GOTV Strategy
Partnerships/ Allied Strategy
After successful completion, fellows will be encouraged to continue the Woke Vote movement across their respective cities and states. The goal of this fellowship is to train and empower people to enact change in their communities through effective outreach and partnerships. We won't change the world in one day; but everyday we can make change.
Woke Vote fellows will be asked to dedicate 10 - 15 hours to the fellowship weekly.
Woke Vote fellows will participate in weekly training webinars.
Woke Vote fellows will organize two community projects focused on voter recruitment and engagement.
Woke Vote fellows will participate or review candidate forums/town halls.
Woke Vote fellows will participate in mandatory Regional Workshops.
Woke Vote fellows will participate in mandatory Weekend of Action.
Complete assigned reading of 1 or more books regarding the movement.
Fellows will be paid a stipend for the 8-week program. Travel / lodging to and from the state selected for the Weekend of Action will also be covered by Woke Vote.
