Our mission at SISTA Fire is to co-create a network of women of color and non-binary people of color to build our collective power for social, economic and political transformation. Our work includes four strategies:

  • Building a Strong Membership Base and Network – Building the leadership of women and gender non-binary people of color and creating an interconnected network is critical to strengthening women of color’s local collective power.
  • Solidarity and Collective Healing – Integrating wellness and holistic practices, we gain new knowledge, understanding and practice to transform our lives individually and collectively. We go beyond self-care to build community care and solidarity towards a better world.
  • Growing our Economic Power – We are forging community-led solutions to build economic strength to break generational poverty and economic violence in our communities.
  • Organizing for Change – Our member-led organizing and collective action has a direct impact on the current conditions and policies women of color face day to day. We are building collective power to transform our lives and change injustice.

 SISTA FIRE aims to nurture a movement building culture in Rhode Island which centers the experience and leadership of women of color. By investing in women’s leadership capacity and creating space for women to build relationships, heal from their individual and collective trauma, develop their historic and systemic analysis, and strategize solutions, SISTA FIRE positions women of color to play a key civic role in the transformation of their communities.
