Arizona’s passage of SB 1070, as well as discussion about the DREAM Act, brought up a lot about immigration in 2010. In timely fashion, Rockwood Leadership Institute, whose mission is to effectively train people in leadership and collaboration, just launched a brand new fellowship for California Immigrant Rights Leaders, which “focuses on leaders who are working for the human and civil rights of immigrant communities. [It’s designed] to support leaders and organizations who are working for social change in immigrant communities.”

Rockwood Leadership Institute is proud to announce the launch of a FELLOWSHIP FOR CALIFORNIA IMMIGRANT RIGHTS LEADERS with the support of the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund.

The Rockwood Fellowship focuses on leaders who are working for the human and civil rights of immigrant communities. While historically, immigration policy has failed to meet the needs of these communities, over the years, and especially the last decade, more and more people have been mobilizing to influence how these policies are shaped. This Fellowship is designed to support leaders and organizations who are working for social change in immigrant communities.

The FELLOWSHIP provides leaders with tools to:

  • Deal more effectively with leadership and organizational challenges
  • Create and sustain compelling visions for their organization
  • Engage in a learning community of leaders working throughout the state of California on immigrant rights

To nominate a leader to the Fellowship for California Immigrant Rights Leaders or for more information, contact:
