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’re now accepting applications for our 2023-2024 Cohort! To apply for the PRAXIS Cohort Fellowship, you must create an account through our Good Grants Portal. The deadline to apply is Thursday, October 20th at 11 PM EST.
