Speak Justice Take Action
The Speak Justice Take Action (SJTA) program is led on the principle that civic engagement combined with community mobilization is vital to making and sustaining lasting change in our communities. The SJTA program includes informing our base and legislators of key reproductive justice issues in order to transform power and shift policy priorities. We engage our constituency in action-oriented political mobilization, online activism, organizing, research, advocacy, and political education. The SJTA program houses legislative hearings, our annual statewide day of action and advocacy, LegislateTHIS!, as well as SOI, the advocacy training leading up to it.
Fierce Youth Reclaiming & Empowering
The Fierce Youth Reclaiming & Empowering (FYRE) program develops the civic leadership of queer & trans youth of color and ally youth of color living in the Southeast in the reproductive justice movement. FYRE develops leaders through internships, social media engagement, our annual FYRE Media Justice Camp, the IGNITE Queer & Trans Youth of Color Convening, trainings and technical assistance for student leaders, art, and by conducting community-based research.
In 2016 we launched our Field Day programming in order to create a space where we could meet and talk with members of our community on the policy and social issues that affect our day-to-day. The field days are intended to not only inform participants of optimal health practices, but also get feedback on issues that they experience which in turn helps SPARK create relevant educational materials and make meaningful connections within our community.
