List informations

Check this list for announcements, news, and events brought to you by the Institute for Global Leadership at Tufts University in partnership with the Petra Foundation. Petra was established in 1988 to sustain the trajectory of Petra Tölle Shattuck’s life by honoring the kind of people she most admired—unsung individuals making distinctive contributions to the rights, autonomy and dignity of others. Petra Fellows fight poverty, discrimination, environmental degradation and violence. They work in prisons and police departments, factories and migrant worker camps, health clinics, housing projects, family farms and public schools—wherever people lack the resources, connections or clout to participate fully in American society.
