Stephany Rose Spaulding was born on the Chicago Southside and grew up in a working class family. Coming from a strong faith tradition, Stephany is firm in her belief that what we really need in government are people willing to sacrifice and to treat others with respect.After high school, she received her undergraduate degree from Clark Atlanta University on a full-tuition scholarship. She then attended Purdue University, where she earned a Ph.D. in American Studies. She accepted a position at the University of Colorado, where she is a tenured Associate Professor of Women’s and Ethnic Studies. Stephany Rose has taken an active role in the community. In addition to teaching, she founded For Our Children’s Children Enterprises, which is dedicated to creating an inheritable world for America’s future generations. She is a board member and participant for many local community organizations that promote and support justice and social equality for all. Feeling the call to teach within her faith community led her to become a licensed minister. She was ordained and appointed Senior Pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church of Colorado Springs.By fighting the current damaging partisanship in the political topography, Stephany Rose hopes to promote a diverse community that includes everyone, not just those who agree to the exclusion of others.
