Thanks for helping us build the anti-genocide constituency!
The Carl Wilkens Fellowship is a selective, year-long program that provides a diverse set of emerging citizen leaders with the tools and training to build sustained political will to end genocide. Seeking to bridge the gap between thought and action in the anti-genocide movement, the goal of the Carl Wilkens Fellowship is to develop effective leaders in communities across the United States who have acquired the skills and fostered the relationships necessary to influence and shape US policies on genocide.
In its inaugural year, the Carl Wilkens Fellowship program has worked with twenty (20) individuals from communities across the country and from a diversity of backgrounds – from retired corporate lawyers to filmmakers to computer programmers to communications specialists. Each one of them has been impacted by what is going on in Darfur, in Burma, and in other areas of the world. Through the Fellowship program, each one of these individuals has taken it upon themselves to acquire the tools and resources to build sustained political will within their communities for the prevention and cessation of genocide.
The Carl Wilkens Fellowship 2010 application is due by November 1 and is available at:
