The Sisterhood Empowerment Academy (SEA)



The Sisterhood Empowerment Academy (SEA) is Sisterhood Agenda's headquarters, a centralized female empowerment space of knowledge, sisterhood support, service coordination, and healing with a sustainable eco-design and nature-inspired architecture.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Sisterhood Agenda has been addressing the health, cultural and social issues of women and girls of African descent for twenty years. Through our work, we have discovered how trauma, both present and historical, can have disturbing effects on the health and welfare of Black woman and girls. The SEA consists of a multi-media center, library, meeting areas, and office space. The SEA is a resource and place of refuge. Sisterhood is a place to be, a place to be loved in, and a place to love.

How will this project solve this problem?

Sisterhood Agenda specializes in female empowerment processes, sustainability, and cultural competence. At the SEA, Sisterhood Agenda will implement holistic, trauma-informed educational strategies to prevent the disparities facing African American females including: 1) obesity and overweight, 2) reproductive health: HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted infections, teen pregnancy, 3) cancer, 4) diabetes, 5) mental health, 6) violence, 7) substance abuse, 8) economic achievement, and 9) technology.

Potential Long Term Impact

The SEA is an innovative, low-cost green building that can be model of sustainable living. History and research shows that communities cannot operate independent of their environment. The demand and cost of energy is rising as businesses and residents are seeking creative ways to offset growing operating cost. Serving over 1,000 females, the SEA project is an opportunity to make valuable investments in our environment, women and girls, and our community.
