Saluja Siwakoti ('21) Awarded PIFP Fellowship at the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless

Feminist & Gender Studies is proud to announce Saluja Siwakoti (Environmental Science major and Feminist & Gender Studies minor '21) was recently awarded a fellowship at the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) in Denver, CO through the Colorado College Public Interest Fellowship Program (PIFP).

CCH is a national leader in providing integrated housing, health care, vocational and supportive services, creating lasting solutions to homelessness. As part of the Education & Advocacy Team, Saluja will be responsible for implementing activities supported by a grant from the Opportunity Starts at Home Campaign through the National Low Income Housing Coalition. More specifically, she will help bring partners from the housing advocacy community together with other multisector partners to engage more effectively on federal housing policy issues, help CCH expand their current base of multisector partners, address partnership gaps in sectors, such as youth and the environment, boost the visibility of their state multisector partnership to increase funding for affordable housing, and amplify racial equity in housing justice work.

Congratulations, Saluja! We are so proud to know you!
