23rd Class Emerson Hunger Fellow Policy Placements

Emerson, Updates

We are excited to announce the policy placements for the 23rd Class of Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellows!  The Emerson Fellows have spent the last five months working at community-based organizations across the country to address issues of hunger and poverty.  In March, the Fellows will begin their policy placements in Washington, D.C. At their policy placements the Emerson Fellows will be able to build on their field experience and directly apply it to national policy initiatives and campaigns on hunger, poverty, and their root causes, including racism. See below for a list of the policy sites where Fellows will be working.
