Greetings! Please find updated information about Sisterhood Agenda, the Sisterhood Empowerment Project, and Sisterhood Agenda’s Global Training Academy.

PROJECT SUMMARY: PLEASE BECOME A FUNDER! Sisterhood Agenda’s Sisterhood Empowerment Project is the only project of its kind: it is a large-scale, female-centered approach to empowering girls, young women, parents, and educators using proven programmatic strategies combined with cultural relevance and positive, alternative media, all implemented at the grassroots, community level.

NEW ACTIVITIES Thank you for all of your support during the last 16 years. Sisterhood Agenda continually adds new Global Network members and new Global Partners to our ever-expanding community of sisters and those who support sisters. This year, Sisterhood Agenda continues to work with the local U.S. Virgin Islands government and local grassroots organizations to launch Sisterhood Agenda’s Global Training Academy in Winter 2010. These exciting activities will bring Sisterhood Agenda Global Partners together from all over the globe, plus includes an exciting online educational component.

Times are changing—fast. And we must change with them. Sisterhood Agenda's website is going to be redone! Thank you for your patience as we bring you: • NEW Sisterhood Agenda Internet portals; • NEW Sisterhood Agenda Global Training Academy activities in the Virgin Islands; • NEW programs and strategies that you can implement in your community; • NEW webinars and training opportunities; • NEW Sister Store merchandise; • NEW website content, articles, and pictures; • NEW ways to share relevant information and bond in the spirit of sisterhood. Sisterhood Agenda posted new material on its website including new EMPOWERMENT VIDEOS for inspiration.

BACKGROUND Sisterhood Agenda is a global, award-winning nonprofit organization that was started in 1994 by Princeton graduate Angela D. Coleman. Sisterhood Agenda creates and implements activities for women and girls with special emphasis on females of African descent. Sisterhood Agenda addresses the social, health, economic and cultural issues of this historically at-risk and traditionally underserved target population.

Based in the United States, Sisterhood Agenda serves over 5 million constituents each year and has thousands of global partners in over 32 countries. Sisterhood resources are listed in the organization’s online Global Resource Directory.

Sisterhood Agenda recognizes that the most effective programs often operate at the grassroots level. Sisterhood Agenda's social impact is expanded through partnerships with agencies, individuals and businesses throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, the Caribbean, United Kingdom, and Africa. Global Partners create an extensive sisterhood network to increase local organization capacity and empower girls and women to become agents for positive change around the globe.
