This is a list of Spokane area Social Justice organizations and other entities that would most likely be defined as Progressive. That doesn’t make them all bad or necessarily extremist but if you enjoy being Politically Correct and love Big Government contact them. If you think Big Government Sucks and love not being controlled by activist agendas then you might want to take a look at their vision statements and examine their belief systems. The saying, “Think Globally Act Locally” didn’t come from the founders of this great nation. (They were tired of that kind of sh** and the King.) It comes from Collectivism. This is all about ideas and narratives to guide the public outcome which is not much different than guiding a classroom to an acceptable behavior.

The Social Justice Idea

Social justice is the view that everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and opportunities. Social workers aim to open the doors of access and opportunity for everyone, particularly those in greatest need. “Really, who’s going to pay for government workers to open doors for you? Your parents? The Wizard of OZ?”

Most of these “folks involved” would consider themselves as Liberal or Progressive. They are simply Activists. Some of these groups honestly do some very nice things for people who are genuinely oppressed or need legal access but they are the first ones to crow about their wonderful achievements and freely embellish themselves as true advocates of a noble agenda. Kind of religious like.

Never Hate, just Educate

There are so many Social Justice groups involved in the Spokane area that this is really only a sample because they mutate and Intersect so you constantly get new organizations. Many qualify as non-profit and are connected to national Alt-Left movements which makes it easier to gain local press coverage.

You can almost time an event when you see a national headline or a regional interest story. It’s as if the Press has a stake in this too. It’s a war of narratives.

Example: “Climate Change” needs someone to stop the burning of coal. Out comes the Spokane Raging Grannies to block the coal trains. The local media gives them Press coverage. Poor little old concerned grandmothers want to save the earth forms the Capitalists.

Example: “Israel defends itself from Hamas.” The Peace Justice Action League of Spokane (PJALS) marches downtown and accuses Israel of War Crimes on blocked off streets during an all American Classic Car Show in 2014.

BDS stands for Boycott Divestment and Sanctions against Israel. It is Economic Warfare against the Jewish State in the Middle East. It has made college campuses a living nightmare for many Christians and Jews.

If the Conservatives had this many groups in Spokane the Southern Poverty Law Center would have boots on the ground to investigate why all the hatred since Conservatives are called Haters by many in these movements.

Here are some more Progressive groups below. This doesn’t mean that they necessarily support the Economic Warfare against Israel but many have worked with PJALS on Social Justice Agendas.
