2021 Fellowship Recipients
Social Justice Fund of Ventura County Fellowship Program
Highlights DWCCV's November 20th Virtual Bunch Meeting
Learn how the Social Justice Fund of Ventura County (SJFVC) is "Developing New Voices for Social Justice" when the philanthropic organization's chair and vice chair present an overview of its Fellowship Program during DWCCV's Virtual Brunch Meeting on Saturday, November 20, at 10 AM. In addition to the leaders, the presentation also will include an introduction to two of the 2021 Fellows. The SJFVC Fellowships permit people from low income and marginalized communities to have the resources and access to pursue a project that impacts an issue in social justice here in Ventura County while building their skills.
SJFVC Chair Michael Teasdale is a strong advocate of the need to provide equal opportunities for all for personal and career development and the transformative power of education to empower individuals to live to their potential. Currently, he also serves as a Trustee on the Ventura County Board of Education. His diverse career has included a director of plays in Europe, a journalist, a school teacher and an executive in a local Biotech firm.
SJFVC Vice Chair Rabiah A. Rahman has been a leader, advocate and a voice for social justice since college. Through her Ventura County law firm, Rabiah At Law, Rabiah represents the plaintiff's side in employment law cases. She has dedicated her legal career to defending workers’ rights throughout the State of California.

Two of the 2021 SJFVC Fellowship recipients also will be recognized during the Virtual Brunch meeting. They are Alisa De Los Santos and Michelle Carballo
