South Plains Advocates for Freedom (SPAFF) is a non-partisan volunteer group of citizen activists whose primary objective is to protect our freedoms and expose government over-reach and the violation of our God-given individual rights.

Our core mission is to promote fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and individual freedom.  Our meetings will be a place where political conservatives can congregate, share values and information and develop and execute plans to further our goals.

We will strive to inform, empower and mobilize taxpayers to resist government overreach in our city, county, state and country by all peaceful means.

SPAFF intends to research and disseminate information concerning current issues that impact our families’ future well-being.

Guidelines for these activities include the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, our Bill of Rights and the virtues and freedoms derived from Biblical principles.
