SisterSong Women Of Color Reproductive Justice Collective

Mission: 

The mission of SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective is to amplify and strengthen the collective voices of Indigenous women and women of color to ensure reproductive justice through eradicating reproductive oppression and securing human rights. After a group of black women first articulated the Reproductive Justice (RJ) framework in 1994, 16 multi-ethnic women-of-color led organizations founded SisterSong to build an RJ movement. We remain one of the movement’s key trainers, thought leaders, media representatives, advocates, organizers, and conveners of intra- and cross-movement collaborations. Our strategic priorities are: RJ Training, Centering Black Women’s Leadership & Issues, Building Southern RJ Synergy, and Arts & Culture for RJ.

SisterSong includes and represents Indigenous, African American/black, Asian and Pacific Islander, Arab and Middle Eastern, and Latinx women and gender non-conforming people, including LGBTQ people. We center the needs of the most marginalized people of color, such as people with low incomes, young mothers, people with criminalization experience, people with HIV/AIDS, sex workers, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ people. Our membership also includes white and male allies dedicated to following the leadership of oppressed people and helping to end oppression. We are committed to serving as an RJ leadership pipeline for young people and have often found opportunities to hire our interns and volunteers on staff.
