The Voqal Fellowship is an investment in individuals as people and budding entrepreneurs. The program serves as a talent and startup accelerator that gives those historically left on the outside a chance to enact their visions at center stage. Before we say goodbye to the latest cohort of the Voqal Fellowship and welcome the next class of changemakers, we continue to take our final look back at the 2021 Voqal Fellows with a short video miniseries.
This week, we continue this Voqal Fellowship Reflections series with a testimonial from Jazmin Martinez and an explanation of their project, Land in the Hands of BIPOC Growers. Martinez’s project puts land back in the hands of BIPOC growers as a means of survival, especially during the climate crisis, and as a strategy for collective change that dismantles the current systems of oppression and violence.
