CURRENT FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
HP Energy Democracy Fellowship Description: a community-focused program to educate, training and deploy participants into energy democracy, organizing and building resilience to oppression from the energy system for front-line communities.
- Highland Park Fellowship Program: Fellows will focus on neighborhood engagement in Highland Park. We will do this by working with the Highland Park Campaign Committee to conduct outreach to neighbors, friends, and family in Highland Park on campaign issues such as energy, water and transparency of city government. Fellows will conduct grassroots power building strategies to recruit Highland Park households, non-profits, and business to participate in our newly launched Grow Solar bulk purchase program (learn more here). Fellows will also participate in Get Out To Vote efforts for the August Primary and November general elections.
- Energy Democracy Fellowship Program: Energy Democracy is the practice of building a just energy system that engages the people of the community in the decision-making process of how energy is developed, maintained, and used in their lives. The Soulardarity Energy Democracy Fellowship is focused on three demands: Health, Affordability, and Community Power in decision making as it relates to energy.
NEW! We're Hiring! Visit https://www.soulardarity.com/fellowship_2021 for details.
Soulardarity is hiring 8 fellows (4 fellows for each fellowship track) to work with our organization from August- December 2021. Fellows will provide support to our Local and State Energy Democracy Campaign, its Leadership Team and Energy Organizers to engage grassroots community and leaders to build power, self-determination and climate justice in Michigan as a response to the oppressive practices and policies of DTE Energy.
Fellows will be expected to serve as a support to Soulardarity, reporting to the Fellowship Coordinators and Core Leadership Team. This fellowship program focuses on advancing community-owned clean energy goals through organizing, media, and movement building. Through the trainings led by Soulardarity, Fellows will learn about the energy system, wealth building alternatives for energy rate payers and how to advance advocacy with legislatures for all who are affected by the bureaucracy that surrounds it.
