Liberation Impact is a fellowship program, fiscally sponsored by the Social Good Fund, for HBCU and Tribal College students to create a career pipeline into social impact. Black and Indigenous communities are often impacted first and worst by sustainability and environmental injustice issues. However, the social impact industry often de-centers the voices of the communities most impacted by social and environmental injustice. Through our career chats, text courses, fellowship, and internship opportunities Liberation Impact seeks to change the narrative and mobilize students for a thriving social impact ecosystem.
