Justice Leaders

At ICJS, a “justice leader” is a community, civic, or nonprofit leader who seeks to understand how the religious diversity of our communities is an asset that can anchor Baltimore’s health and growth. 

Justice Leaders Fellowship

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.


The Justice Leaders Fellowship is supported in part by the Henry Luce Foundation in partnership with Morgan State University’s Center for the Study of Religion in the City, with additional funding from the David and Barbara B. Hirschhorn Foundation.

Actually just being able to talk with people and understand where our foundations are—that’s been really powerful.
