Economic Activism Fellow

The Economic Activism program aims to expose, isolate, and reduce corporate complicity in state violence. Large corporations hold immense political power and enjoy legal impunity. When such economic actors profit from mass incarceration, military occupation, immigrant detention, or surveillance and policing, they tend to use their political influence to deepen and entrench these harmful activities.

The Economic Activism Fellow will provide economic activism support to social justice movements working for immigrant rights, prison abolition, against mass incarceration, surveillance, and militarization.
