The PRAXIS Cohort Fellowship is an opportunity founded by The Center for Third World Organizing in partnership with the Liberatory Leadership Project to support Black-led organizations that are in the founding stages (years 0-5) of a new organization or project.

Participating organizations are provided with support including coaching, website assistance and a stipend. The vision of PRAXIS is to assist its participants in developing as liberatory leaders and to continue to create organizations that will move us closer to liberation.

how we define liberatory leadership

Liberatory leadership theory and practice invites us to lead from a place of wholeness, love, and interdependence. By valuing celebration over competition, we are able to access possibilities that can only emerge in community. The practice of liberatory leadership flourishes when we create space for rest, when we address power differentials in service of justice, and when we center those at the margins within our organizations and our work.


We do not have any events at this time. Stay tuned and sign up for our newsletter updates! 

watch: our Living liberation virtual conference

Let’s talk about LIBERATION–All of our 2022 Living Liberation videos are available to watch on our website!


If you were able to attend both days or couldn’t make it to the conference, you can access our event page and check out the resources provided by panelists for both days. This conference sprang from a need for supporting the development and growth of liberatory organizations.

 Living Liberation was a group effort, a vision that could not have been turned into reality without the hands-on support from organizations like the Leadership Learning Community, Social Insights, Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and many others within our Liberatory Leadership Praxis network. We also want to express our gratitude to our incredible panelists doing the incredible work to make liberation for our communities a reality. 


Some of the Live sessions and workshops include:

  • Building Liberatory Organizations From The Ground Up
  • Moving From Old To New: Transforming White Orgs Through A Liberatory Framework
  • Building Power Through a Liberatory Lens
  • Making Our Organizations Places of Liberation
  • Developing Liberatory Leaders
  • Diversifying Funding Streams
