Our community takes action to defend human rights around the world. Explore our 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.

Pan Asian Collective
Landecker Democracy Fellow Hui Hui's The Collective is a shared community and (digital) network space where members of Asian communities can connect and expand their networks. The space is the gateway for Asian Dutch to find creatives, role models, and peers while also raising awareness to the many Asian voices and people who are often invisible in mainstream society.

Knowledge Article: Community Building in Corona Times

Oy Vey Acts
Landecker Democracy Fellow Lievnath Faber works on co-creating a Jewish hub, Oy Vey, in the city center of Amsterdam, right in the middle of the former Jewish quarter. Lievnath’s idea is to create a lasting connection between the Jewish activists and the broader activist community in The Netherlands, specifically in Amsterdam. This will create a civic revolution against populist, nationalist, and racist forces in our society who benefit from the current antagonism between these communities.

Responsible and Sustainable Business Leader
Landecker Democracy Fellow Ireen Kars is a consultant at Russell Reynolds Associates, which helps companies identify, select, and grow sustainable leaders who will thrive and succeed over the long term.
