The NewGround Professional Change-Maker Program provides the expertise and relationships needed to transform Muslim-Jewish relations and work on issues of shared concern. This experience is an investment in religious, civic, and communal leadership to foster a network which can support one another in countering bias and can withstand tensions and navigate pressures that arise between the Muslim and Jewish communities. The City of Los Angeles Human Relations Commission recognizes fellowship alumni for their committed leadership to civic engagement and transformational discourse. Upon completion of the fellowship, you will receive a certificate from the City of Los Angeles in appreciation of your commitment to strengthening Muslim-Jewish relations.

This program is for Change-Makers who fall between 25 to 60 years of age.
