Just Cities Institute (JCI) seeks to support the leadership development of a passionate, visionary,
big-hearted, humble, and community-centered future leader who represents the enduring legacy
of former Congressman Ron Dellums. The Dellums Transformative Justice Planning Fellowship
(Fellowship) is a one year full-time fellowship to help advance the practice of transformative
community planning in urban planning. The Fellow’s overall supervisor will be Just Cities’
Associate Director of Urban Planning Justice, Diana Benitez.
For the 2022-23 program, the Fellow will work on several of Just Cities' urban planning initiatives.
In addition, depending upon the Fellow’s interest, there are opportunities to learn about and
support fund development and communications infrastructure priorities.
JCI is grounded in trust, mutual respect, and equity. In all of our relationships with each other,
and with community members, we hold ourselves accountable to advance human rights, be
truthful, uplift rather than undermine, and conduct our work in a focused, dedicated, and
effective way. We seek a team member who is excited about sharing these accountabilities.
Among other things, this means that when a conflict arises, which is inevitable, we address it
openly and lean into our relationships as mutually respectful colleagues, rather than into
structural authority.
