Challenge

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

Solution

Sisterhood Agenda specializes in female empowerment processes, sustainability, and cultural competence. At the SEA, Sisterhood Agenda will implement holistic, trauma-informed educational strategies for sisterhood, women's support, and empowerment.

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 women and girls annually, the SEA project is an opportunity to make valuable investments in our environment, women and girls, and our community.
