intergenerational communities together in a process of community formation. Here, they develop the language, knowledge, analysis, community
spirit, hindsight, insight, and foresight, and connections to organize, educate, and lead a racial justice movement at home and throughout
the nation. In this process of community formation for racial justice, SpiritHouse uses a pedagogy of community building and reaffirmation
that draws on cultural and spiritual resources to draw out the power of communities, in order to develop concrete strategies to take their
struggle for racial justice to the media, public policy advocates, churches, youth, halls of government, interfaith communities,
institutions of higher education, and social networks. Learn more.

Participatory Democracy - The SpiritHouse Project operates on three fundamental principles of
- Let the People Decide
- Strong Leaders Emerge Out of the Body of Strong Communities
- Authentic Struggle for Liberation is Intergenerational
Spirituality - SpiritHouse recognizes that justice is both a spiritual and social concept that
are interconnected to each other. Injustice and violence are signs of deep spiritual malformation. They spread a national cancer that eats
away at our national unity and potential. Learn more.
SpiritHouse is a frontline and consistent voice for racial justice. We have stood on the front
lines, whether working to stop racist crimes against Black people; educating our children; economically, socially, or politically advancing

the presence of racism in their communities and in the nation. Learn more.

The SpiritHouse Project calls on Black women to participate in SisterAll4, the first 21st-century National
Assembly of Black Women in America. We will gather to understand the explosion of racism today. With SisterAll4, we are
organizing to ignite a crusade for “If not now, when?”. This will prepare women through small classroom learning, large
learning spaces, debates, and opportunities to strengthen their skills in participatory democracy to become organizers, mobilizers,
leaders, and educators at home and in the nation, in a 21st-century crusade for racial justice that engages 600,000 people of all colors.
The first leg of this crusade begins with a tour throughout the South to talk with and mobilize Black women to attend SisterAll4. The
second phase is the SisterAll4 Assembly. We will continue the work of SisterAll by
building up regional youth divisions as well as communities of allies.
