Moving Forward: Recovering & Rebuilding for Success

At Sisterhood Agenda, we have not been sitting still.  We have been jumping over hurdles and scaling walls to make progress toward our mission, despite the damage and hardships caused by Hurricane Irma. Our efforts are being rewarded. The women and girls that we work with are too valuable and our work is too important to stop now.   

Thank you to everyone who has supported us and is continuing to contribute to Sisterhood Agenda's Hurricane Irma Relief campaign.  We certainly need your assistance like never before and you have come through for us! 

Sisterhood Agenda team members have been working with federal, local, and private agencies to assist those most in need on the island of St. John. After doing immediate disaster relief work with several entities, energy is slowly being directed to rebuilding efforts.

Building materials have to be imported to the island and there are those who are thinking ahead. For example, one of the agencies, Angels of Asheville, is committed to bringing donated building materials to St. John from private donors via shipping container from Asheville, North Carolina.

With our heightened resilience, Sisterhood Agenda is now building a newer, stronger foundation for success. Largely due to our committed network of support, we have been able to set up an administrative base in the U.S. for consistent mobile and Internet services and better access to our stateside global partners while the island of St. John, the location of our SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy, recovers.  In addition, our builder is committed to rebuild the roof, walls, plus install the doors and windows that were destroyed during the storm.  Of course, our efforts towards this goals are affected by funds and building materials that are available to us.

We are in the process of converting Sisterhood Agenda's print library, which was destroyed by the hurricane, to a digital library that can be accessed via Sisterhood Agenda's website, https://sisterhoodagenda.com/. 

We are excited to bring our work to the next level-training, counseling, and working with other groups and individuals committed to serving women and girls. Successful resolution of sexual harassment, gender inequality, violence against women and trauma, while promoting unity in diversity, health and healing in the spirit of sisterhood is what we are all about.  We could not do it withhout you.  

Stay tuned as we continue to move forward... to success.

Warm Regards,
Angela D. Coleman

Resilience After the Storms

Dear Friends,

Like too many of us, Sisterhood Agenda has been affected by recent catastrophic storms, specifically Hurricane Irma. Our Sisterhood Agenda team is safe and our headquarters, the SEA: Sisterhood Empowerment Academy, remains closed.  

We have been without electricity since September 5, 2017 and some areas on our island, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, will be in the dark until 2018!

Read more about Sisterhood Agenda's Hurricane Irma Relief project on Globalgiving.org.

That being said, we are eternally grateful for life and for what still stands as well as our building and mission to promote sisterhood around the globe through education, women's support, and empowerment. 

Thank you to all of you who have expressed concerned, offered and provided help as we heal and recover from this important life event. 

Natural disasters like Hurricane Irma reiterate the importance of living in harmony with nature and communion with one another.  With a clean slate, when we are ready, we will rebuild:  stronger, smarter, and better than before.

In our Sister Circles training and counseling, we talk about resiliency. Rather than weakening or crippling us, our adversities can reshape our resolve and make us stronger than ever, building incrementally on a foundation of success.

Know that we are here with our positive intentions and that we will not be forgotten!  We invite you to join us.  You can donate, volunteer, and participate in your own way.  

Thank you for putting Sisterhood on the Agenda!

In the Spirit of Sisterhood,
