Action Projects - Germany
Our community takes action to defend democratic values around the world. Explore our Fellows' Action Projects here.
In the 11 months following the on-site Fellowship program, our Fellows work on their Action Project: an independent venture focused on promoting democratic values in their own communities. Action Projects are as diverse as Humanity in Action Fellows. Fellows apply their new knowledge and perspectives to the communities they impact—in whatever format they find meaningful. The Humanity in Action community is a great resource for getting support—be it with contacts, experience or good advice.
Youth Voices Lead
As a Landecker Democracy Fellow, Marissa is developing Youth Voices Lead (YVL), a paid, digital community and training program for 12+ youth organizers to strengthen their artistic tools and human rights knowledge to advocate for racial justice change. For around 10 weeks, these young leaders (ages 14-18) from across New York City will learn about the important issues directly impacting their communities and use artivism to inform others.
Get Out the Votes
Lumir’s Landecker Democracy Fellowship project aims to foster social cohesion in rural communities by working with groups of diverse rural youth to help them brainstorm GOTV solutions through innovative formats, and to share those findings.
Landecker Democracy Fellow Cecy's project, Rebel Planner, is an empowering workbook for more political engagement. The workbook uses tools and techniques known from coaching and mindfulness training.
By the People
Lulu’s Landecker Democracy Fellowship project, By The People, is a dynamic learning collective of public sector and community leaders. By The People creates brave spaces for leaders, organizers, and advocates on the frontlines of local decision-making to grapple with how to tactically realize participatory local governance at scale.

Anna Karwatka's Action Project aims to increase young people’s knowledge of the political discourse and their engagement in civic activism.
