Sister Song “Doing Collectively What We Cannot Do Individually”

27 Apr

In this video Loretta Ross speaks a little on the history of SisterSong a “network of local, regional and national grassroots agencies representing five primary ethnic populations/indigenous nations in the United States: African American, Arab American/Middle Eastern, Asian /Pacific Islander, Latina and Native American/Indigenous.”


Formed in 1997 to educate women of color and policymakers on reproductive and sexual health rights, the collective still fights today for the rights of access to health services, information and resources that are culturally and linguistically applicable to women.  This collective does public policy work and provides health educations within communities of color on a local and global level.

Some member organizations located in Los Angeles:
