Greater Spokane Progress’ work is focused on four main areas:
Spokane is increasingly diverse, and GSP’s programs are here to support communities of color, the LGBTQ community, the formerly incarcerated, and people living in poverty, with disabilities, and with mental illness to build grassroots power and increase equity. While people of color make up approximately 14% of Spokane County’s population, 31% of Spokane County student youth identify as multi-racial. People of color in Spokane are disproportionately impacted by high rates of law enforcement misuses of force, arrest, incarceration, poverty, and barriers to employment, housing, and other services. GSP organizes using a racial equity lens to address the root causes of racial disparities so that, ultimately, these disparities will not impact future generations.
