The Spokane Alliance has various leadership structures that help guide our direction.  These include:

  • Delegate Assembly- consisting of voting delegates from each member institution, setting the direction for the Spokane Alliance's organizing work.


  • Strategy Team - an active committee of the Delegate Assembly, provides leadership and guidance between gatherings. This team is responsible for guiding and implementing the strategy of the organization.


  • Research Action Teams - guide our issue work. These volunteers leaders do all the work of researching an issue with experts in the field, focusing and planning a concrete and winnable campaign which they then ratify with the Delegate Assembly. Check out our campaigns page for more information about our current work.


  • Institutional Leaders Caucus -  a gathering of the institutional staff who are primarily responsible for the well-being of their organizations. Clergy and union staff gather to have conversations with each other about how to understand their larger role in society and how organizing through the Spokane Alliance can help further their institution’s values and goals.
