The SPARK Fellowship is a leadership development, research, and organizing fellowship designed to introduce fellows to Reproductive Justice and the RJ Movement. SPARK will be providing fellows with all of the RJ trainings in our wheelhouse. Afterwards, SPARK Fellows will be working towards their own individual RJ projects or a bigger project they may decide to do together. The project(s) should fit SPARK’s mission. The project(s) will be required to have an advocacy/outreach component, an educational/facilitation component, and a program implementation component.
