NLC-RI July Newsletter

We would like to thank all of our 2016 Fellows for an amazing year, take a look at our graduation photos!

We'd also like to announce and welcome our newest board members:

Julio Alicea

Karen Alzate
Laura Bozzi
Eve Keobounthanh
Taino Palermo
Kunal Vasudev
Emily Winchell
Naomi Leipold
Miellette McFarlane

Some of our board members attended the Annual NLC National Retreat in Washington, D.C. from July 15-17 and we are proud to announce that Rhode Island won the Diversity Commitment Award! We strive to look outside traditional power structures and be representative of the community and this award embodies that work. 

As recruitment for the 2017 cohort begins, we encourage you to get the word out! Do you have friends in the art community who are interested in using their creativity to have an impact on social justice? Or maybe teachers who want to work on bringing more culturally relevant lessons to urban classrooms. We'd love to meet them!

As many of you know, there is a $30 application fee. Please consider sponsoring a potential fellow and donate today! In keeping with our commitment to accessibly, it is critical to continue offering application fee waivers. It has made all of the difference for some of our past fellows. 

Lastly, mark your calendars for September 8th from 5 p.m. until midnight! Bartenders at What Cheer Tavern in Providence will be donating 100% of their tips to New Leaders Council.

Thank you for your continuous support and being a part of the #NLCFamily!
