Empowering women to better our future-this is what Sisterhood Agenda is all about.

The nonprofit organization, Sisterhood Agenda, based in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. area, focuses on empowering women and girls on a national and global level by creating a collective spirit for women formed through their online network.

Developed by Angela D. Coleman in 1994, Sisterhood Agenda functions to help all women and girls to know and understand their cultural identity, heritage, strengths, and power. These, she believes, are the keys t empowering women.

In order to be the change that many girls needed, the Sisterhood Agenda nonprofit organization establishes its vision in one word – SISTERHOOD.

Empowering women means loving yourself first. Coleman declares that “we must love, respect, and cherish ourselves and each other as women.  Then, we can develop, heal, and grow together for community upliftment and positive social change.”

Outreach that the Sisterhood Agenda dedicates itself to provides and encourages women empowerment and betters the women it matured.

GLOBAL SISTERHOOD DIRECTORY

Empowering women also means finding a place where you feel comfortable. According to Anita Anderson, a product of her hometown’s women empowerment nonprofit, sisterhood is as simple as “finding a place where you belong and you can be your true self.” Anderson herself was not a product of the Sisterhood Agenda but rather a pageant winner at the  Miss Black Teenage Pageant of the Greater Pittsburgh Area in 1990.

The training for the pageant paralleled the service that the Sisterhood Agenda provides for its national and international community. Anderson looks towards community leaders like her own and Coleman as role models as they “make a mission to impact the experience of  the Black woman by showing them all the possibilities the world has to offer.”

While being a constantly developing network, Sisterhood Agenda, becomes a source of education and support as they encourage women’s empowerment.

Coleman asserts that “our sisterhood network is the epitome of sisterhood in theory and in practice:  we are helping to support each other’s work while uplifting and supporting each other.” Serving their global sisterhood network as doers by providing services and resources for development uplifts their selected community.

WHAT IS SISTERHOOD?

Alice Bellis, a Professor of Hebrew Bible at Howard University, holds to the theory of growing empowerment in that:

“Each generation stands on the shoulders of the last.”

At the forefront of their service, Michelle Obama’s role and example for women is praised.  Obama’s role specifically illuminates the possibilities for young girls to come. As a precedent-setting figurehead, Obama presents as graceful and poised while showcasing a balance of professional aspirations and family life.  In response to the exemplary First Lady, Sisterhood Agenda published Girls Guide:  How to Be Like Michelle Obama, a publication that was nominated for an NAACP Image Award.

By teaching low tolerance for inequality and staying mission-oriented, Sisterhood Agenda is improving the lives of so many.

Empowering women and girls is what Sisterhood Agenda does. Sisterhood Agenda’s achievements deserve nothing less than the recognition it receives from the public, in addition to many private accolades.  In 2024, as Sisterhood AGenda celebrates our 30th anniversary, we celebrate the projects that we have and choose to accomplish for the betterment of our evolving community.
