On Saturday, October 27th, women of color from all around Rhode Island came to participate in “Invisible No More: Women of Color Standing Together“. We want to take the time to thank everyone for attending and participating! We had over 80 attendees to the community forum! Many thanks to Design Studio for Social Intervention for the Creativity Lab, people truly engaged with the data.
We are excited to connect with women of color in Rhode Island! We deeply believe that women of color working together will change the conditions and the future of Rhode Island. Currently, women face some of the greatest challenges, including economic inequality, domestic violence, and access to healthcare.

SISTA FIRE IS LOOKING FOR BOLD WOMEN!
We are developing a network of women of color–ages 18-30–to build our collective power for social, economic and political transformation. This spring, we hope you will join us in our SISTA Circle [link to descrip in Our Work].
The Spring SISTA Circle will provide space for deep interpersonal and political development. Together we will increase our knowledge through workshops, community engagement, and practices that will deepen our connections to one another.

Take Our Survey
SISTA FIRE is committed to starting from the lived experiences of women of color in all of its work. We are learning from each other, connecting our strengths, and identifying our common problems in order to take collective action. One strategy we are implementing is a survey developed by the SISTA CIRCLE in summer 2017.
If you are a woman of color, aged 18-30 years old, living in Rhode Island, please connect with us and take our survey! [link to survey]
