We are pleased to announce that applications for the 1st  Grassroots Initiative for Organizing and Transformation (GRIOT) Project are now open!

GFADP’s GRIOT Project is a specialized leadership development program aimed at supporting at least 20 leaders of color from across the state. 

The GRIOT Project is designed to be a learn-by-doing approach to skill-building.  These leaders will be exposed to best practices in base-building, campaign development, media strategy, policy advocacy, coalition building and personal development activities.  In conjunction with the program, participants will also help GFADP lead and establish Organizing Committees in Atlanta, Columbus, Dawson, Macon, and Savannah.  The skills developed through the program will immediately be put to use to advance GFADP’s mission and empower communities of color in Georgia, ensure that those most directly impacted by this system are at the forefront of designing innovative solutions that address its problems. GFADP is seeking highly motivated individuals who wish to create positive change in their communities, who are committed to social and racial justice, and who dedicated to GFADP’s mission.
