The mission of SPACEs (Safe Places for the Advancement of Community and Equity) is to reverse and eliminate the generational effects of race, racism and poverty. It does this through a creative combination of organizing, leadership development and cultural work.

SPACEs is an inter- disciplinary social justice organization that unleashes the capacity of people and organizations to create communities of HOPE (Healing, Opportunity and Possibility for Everyone). SPACEs creates a “space” where “real listening” happens; where there isn’t a rush to get through an agenda or to make a decision and where the goal is to converse not convince.
