News: Ignite NC Summer Research Fellowship

May 30, 2017 - 9:45am

Since 2013, Ignite has been engaged in dynamic campaigns and organizing efforts centered around the issues that concern their communities. Some of these efforts have included campaigns for a livable wage, Black Lives Matter, UNC Board of Governors and administration accountability, HB2, and election protection.

Each semester, their Organizing Fellows, Training Fellows, and Communications Fellows develop political education events, campaigns, and summits, with the goal of increasing knowledge, skill, and understanding of complex systems we seek to interrogate, build upon, exercise people power, interrupt, and dismantle.
