“The idea of a coalition of leaders of color driving enduring change is what has most compelled me to be a part of the fellowship. To me, Surge means a shift in power—specifically the idea that women and men of color have the capacity to not only lead in this movement but shape this movement. Surge stands for an explicit investment in me and my development that will enable me to have the long-term impact I want.”
