SPACEs In Action believes in developing the whole person; and as such, develops leaders by equipping them with the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to approach policymakers and advocate for change in their communities. We believe that racial equity must be the centerpiece of all policy making and implementation. The lack of racial equity has led to the oppression of Black people and other people of color. We will not be free until we are all free.
We amplify the work of existing programs by involving our vast network and integrating grassroots methods of communication, including a word of mouth model. To increase the voter registration roles, political engagement and the political power of our base, we incorporate Get Out The Vote efforts in all of our campaigns.
Partnering with national groups gives us the opportunity to engage with like organizations in other states. We also have the opportunity to make connections between our local work and national policies and reforms.
