The ICJS Justice Leaders Fellowship gives community or civic leaders a 12-month opportunity to use interfaith learning and collaboration to advance a more just and prosperous Baltimore. Under the guidance of ICJS scholars and staff, Justice Leaders meet monthly for interreligious study and dialogue to consider how religious texts and traditions can provide rich resources to inform their own work and journeys.
Fellows gain an understanding of how diverse religious perspectives can address civic and social challenges. In 2020 the fellowship’s study theme is Water Justice in Baltimore.
After studying and reflecting together for in the winter and spring, fellows serve as facilitators for public conversations (Imagining Justice in Baltimore) around this theme in fall 2020.
