We aim to strengthen services for survivors in all institutions and we know the fight to end rape culture on campus is critical as resources continue to be stripped. The ‘me too.’ x HBCU Fellowship aims to foster a community with students and administration to incubate and imagine campus survivor programming with the intention of cultivating a foundation for longer-term survivor-led organizing on campus.

- Delaware State University
- Howard University
- Alabama State University

The fellowship will:
- Focus on education, outreach, leadership and program development.
- Require 12 hours a month (4 weekly 3-hour work/learning Zoom sessions on Wednesdays, from 6-9pm EST)
- Compensate 3 faculty/staff with $1,000 each over the course of 6 months
