The Next Generation Fellowship (NGF) is a leadership development and policy advocacy training for formerly incarcerated or justice-involved individuals from across California. It supports emerging leaders in 1) advancing racial justice and cultural healing, and 2) influencing state and local government through policy advocacy. The fellowship focuses on the movement to end mass incarceration with an emphasis on promoting healthy, safe communities.

Fellows will leverage their personal and professional experiences to drive transformative change in the justice system. Over three 2-day sessions, participants will take part in culturally-relevant activities intended to foster effective storytelling, civic participation, and strategic advocacy. Through NGF, fellows will recognize their lived experience as a form of expertise that can influence policy-making and strengthen campaigns for justice reform. NGF brings together a community of advocates and mentors that will provide ongoing support and connect fellows with opportunities for leadership in the justice reform field.
