I’m so excited to announce that we’re now accepting applications for AU’s 2024-2025 Youth Organizing Fellowship program!

The Fellowship is an exciting – and paid – opportunity for emerging activists to grow as leaders, build power with a national cohort of youth organizers, and advocate for religious freedom and the separation of church and state.

With AU’s support, the Fellows will:

* Serve as ambassadors for AU and our mission.

* Educate their communities about the importance of church-state separation.

* Plan events and activities to mobilize members of their communities to take action.

Americans United will select applicants who are interested in activism and religious freedom, share our values of freedom without favor and equality without exception and have a wide range of experience with advocacy and organizing. The Fellowship kicks off virtually in September 2024, followed by an in-person convening in Washington, D.C., in October and continuing virtually over the course of a year.

Americans United is able to provide these opportunities for our movement’s next generation of leaders because of people like you who support our work. Thank you!

I can’t wait to read the applications!

Congress needs to hear from you!

Urge your legislators to co-sponsor the Do No Harm Act today.

The Do No Harm Act will help ensure that our laws are a shield to protect religious freedom and not used as a sword to harm others by undermining civil rights laws and denying access to health care.
