Reminder: Deadline for Letters of Interest October 30, 2020

The Elias Foundation is still accepting applications for their Activist Fellowship Program supporting Hudson Valley activists working towards local movement building in communities hardest hit by injustice and inequality. 

Please share this notice with your groups. Please note: the deadline for sending a Letter of Interest is October 30, 2020.

Now in its third year, the goal of this program is to strengthen and build social justice movements by developing activists’ skills and capacities in the Hudson Valley.  The Elias Foundation hopes to identify and support the work of people from the grassroots and frontline communities. This includes, but is not limited to, individuals who self-define as low-income, people of color, indigenous, immigrant, women, trans, gender nonconforming, LGBT and/or queer, youth, working class and disabled.

Each awardee will receive a total of $90,000 over five years of support ($25,000 for the first three years, $10,000 in fourth year and $5,000 for the final year). This support is aimed at people working in underserved communities who would not normally have access to this kind of funding.

To read more about the Fellowship, the criteria for applying, information on how to apply and read about previous recipients, please visit the Elias Foundation website. You can also contact Polly Withers at if you have any questions or would like to nominate someone. Thank you.

Are you looking for a safe space for your child to explore their identity amongst a group of warm & welcoming therapists and peers? 

The Gender Identity Exploration Group at The Psychological Center at City College is a welcoming space for youth (ages 10-12) looking to process experiences related to gender and identity.  Participants will have the opportunity to explore aspects of their gender identity as well as to build skills to help them navigate issues related to family, school and community.  Sessions aim to offer members both a support group of peers, a setting to discuss issues related to gender identity development and authentic expression, as well as a safe space to explore questions related to current difficulties and stressors. The group is open to youth broadly, including those who are questioning and exploring their sense of themselves and others. Sliding scale fee ($5-$50). Please call us at 212.650.6393 ext. 9075.
