August 10th through September 1st
NDESPA is committed to connecting this effort to a broader agenda for poverty reduction and asset building in North Dakota into the future. While North Dakota experiences an unprecedented growth in financial resources, there remain children and families who have no health care, food pantries with not enough food and waiting lists for affordable childcare. These issues place an increased burden on parents/adults already working multiple jobs simply to make ends meet.
The coalition is broad and diverse. Some organizations are tasked with helping a particular segment of people (abused women, people with disabilities, single parents) but all organizations are committed to a partnership that does not draw those distinctions. Rather, they wish to work together toward the common goal of poverty reduction recognizing that a “rising tide will lift all ships.” Some organizations opt out of support or opposition to some NDESPA initiatives from time to time if they have a conflict of interest.
Vision Statement: All North Dakotans have the economic freedom to live their best life.
Mission Statement: To inform, develop, and advance public policy that secures economic security and financial freedom for all North Dakotans.
Statement of Association and Purpose: The North Dakota Economic Security and Prosperity Alliance (NDESPA) is a collaborative of diverse organizations operating by consensus that exists to inform, develop, and advance public policies that secure economic security and financial freedom for all North Dakotans to live their best life.
