About the event
Food & Fellowship provided! The purpose of Serve Our Sisters is to move our community to take action on behalf of Black women in spite of gender, educational level, religious affiliation and socioeconomic status to build organizing squads that embrace the power of issue-led campaigns and community service. Serve Our Sisters started in 2018 and is a celebration of the continuous civic engagement of Black women and a call to action.
Celebrate a day of action by attending Color Of Change’s annual Serve Our Sisters event with your family and friends. You will experience the joy of bonding that is rooted in our most trusted circles while engaging in guided discussions that affirm our worldview. Inflation, the coronavirus and inadequate healthcare have added to the systemic racism that has created economic disparities in our communities for years. We will center the concerns of the Black family when discussing our ability to adequately care for the sick, educate our children, and earn a living wage. Most importantly, as we consider the newly elected decision-makers in our community, we’ll think critically about what it means to hold them accountable to addressing our issues.
Serve Our Sisters is an ongoing commitment to center Black women, uplift our stories and celebrate our unique value in order to move our communities forward. All care packages prepared will be donated to CocoLife Foundation.
