Mandela Day

The Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, started in 2014, is the flagship program of former President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) that empowers young people through academic coursework, leadership training, and networking. The Fellows have established records of accomplishment in promoting innovation and positive change in their organizations, institutions, communities, and countries.

Please join us for an evening with the Mandela Washington Fellows to celebrate the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela on what would be his 100th birthday. This event will take place on July 18, from 6-8pm at MERGE (136 S Dubuque St, Iowa City, IA) with dinner provided. Please RSVP below if you are able to attend!
