Sisterhood Agenda invites our global partners and especially our global girls to our intimate gathering, Celebrating Sisterhood: 25 Years of Service, at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 1:00pm-5:00pm.
During this ceremony, Sisterhood Agenda will present our first Sisterhood of Greatness Awards. Sisterhood of Greatness Awards are presented to several women who represent and exemplify a code of excellence in consciousness, character, and conduct. We will also award our Young Sister on the Rise Scholarships.
Celebrating our 25-year anniversary is a testament to the collective spirit and strength of our constituency including over 5,000 global agencies throughout 36 countries, who share our purposeful focus on girls while growing a powerful force for positive social change.
During the devastating 2017 storms, hurricanes Irma and Maria, our newly opened SEA: Sisterhood Empowerment Academy on St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands was severely damaged. We rebuilt it, stronger than ever, and remain vigilant in our ongoing support of millions of women and girls through partnerships, training, projects, programs, and products.
To mark this occasion, we decided to share our 25-year anniversary within our sisterhood by spotlighting the efforts of other amazing women and girls who have made a difference by standing up, stepping out and lifting us up to make the world a better place. Together, we realize the collective bond and power we impose when eradicating the issues we choose to champion. Therefore, we commemorate our anniversary by celebrating others!
Sisterhood is the foundation for collective empowerment. Our sisterhood is diverse and inclusive because we are all unique. Striving for meaningful connection, we want women and girls to know that they are never alone.
All partners, donors, and constituents are invited to join us for this special event. Thank you for all that you do.
In the Spirit of Sisterhood,
Angela D. Coleman, MBA, CNM
Founder & President
