Survivor Alliance Fellowships

Survivor Alliance Capacity Building Initiative


The Survivor Alliance Capacity Building Initiative is a program designed to support survivors in building local survivor networks, and to lead their communities in the fight against human trafficking. The Capacity Building Initiative is part of the Pathways to Freedom Challenge and will take place in three US cities: Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; and Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The program is funded by the Partnerships for Freedom, which is a public-private partnership created by the Humanity United foundation. Partnerships for Freedom launched Pathways to Freedom, their third challenge to create innovative solutions to human trafficking. The Pathways to Freedom is led by Humanity United and the NoVo Foundation.

A key component of the Capacity Building Initiative is the Survivor Alliance Fellowship Program. We are recruiting two fellows in each city.
