SIA_FAQs – Spaces in Action

Washington, DC and Montgomery County, MD

We are really passionate about advocating for better early childhood education, health equity and economic justice in Black and Brown communities across DC.

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.

SPACEs In Action welcomes new members throughout the year. Learn more about membership benefits and how to register here
