Prime Mover Eboo Patel joined the fellowship in 2005.

We are looking for leaders following in the footsteps of pioneers such as Susan B. Anthony, Cesar Chavez, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Social movements, led by these individuals, are sustained collective challenges by ordinary people who act to change policies, cultural behavior, or social inequities. Successful candidates for our Prime Movers program are individuals who:

  • commit to realizing the societal change he or she envisions;
  • represent a mass of individuals who share his or her vision;
  • cultivate the next generation of leaders in his or her movement;
  • take risks; and
  • inspire others to action.

Additionally, all applicants must be affiliated with a 501-c-3.
