Echoing Green works where social justice and social innovation meet, backing bold leaders who believe in upending unjust systems. They seek people with the best ideas for social transformation and do everything they can to help them succeed. Echoing Green Fellows connect across their experiences, whether they are working on access to education across Michigan, digital equity in Accra, environmental justice in Brazil, or Indigenous sovereignty across the world.
