AMP: Grassroots²

Durham, NC


Vision: SpiritHouse is a multigenerational Black women-led cultural organization, who use art, culture and media to support the empowerment and transformation for the most systemically marginalized communities. Spirit House works to uncover and uproot the systemic barriers that prevent communities from gaining the resources, leverage and capacity necessary for long-term self-sufficiency.

Impact: Through transformative justice trainings, ban the box campaigns, the ‘Fostering Alternatives to Drug Enforcement” coalition, and through intentional healing and mourning process, SpiritHouse organizes locally within North Carolina, and connects its work to national justice movements, with shared visions of equity and liberation.
