Located in the Heart of Springfield, MA
Once fully functional, our 2,000 square foot space with a modern, creative- industrial-style will offer hot desks, shared and private desks, a conference room, as well as a bookstore and cafe. The Ethnic Study will give new meaning to the term “collaboration”, as members will be encouraged to connect, share resources, learn from one another and teach! Members will have the freedom to meet, to work, organize, and to build their plans from the ground up. Visitors can start with a Day Pass or a Hot Desk then add other amenities such as conference room hours, Phonebooth usage, a mailing address, and more...
Affiliation with 413 Stay Woke, Stay Active
The mission of 413 Stay Woke, Stay Active is to actively mitigate the effects of systemic racism by empowering Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) through community education and organized direct action. In aligning our values with the National Black Lives Matter Movement, our goal is to fight for the liberation of black and brown people and for the elimination of systemic white supremacy. We believe that our work is not centered on Black lives merely mattering, it is centered on Black and brown lives thriving!
The Ethnic Study is a direct manifestation of the grassroots organizing efforts of 413SWSA and our supporters.
What We Believe
Community members who have been historically and systematically marginalized deserve a nurturing environment that supports healing and is hyper-focused on increasing BIPOC leadership capacity, and centralizing community and business-related resources.
