WATCH ME CHANGE
Our Banner was an inspiration for all mothers and Black girls of BIPOC communities to be proud of who they are and what they provide to the world. The love and passion for helping our young black-born females (ages 10–24) transition into the world as critical thinkers, advocates for themselves, and agents of social change regarding the negative stereotypes of black women are what moved us to want to see a butterfly transformation within ourselves as well as the community.
Sistahs About Sup’hum Serious
Sup’hum we do as Sistahs who are Serious About change is seek knowledge, provide support, promote advocacy, and share resources with females of all ages and backgrounds in a BIPOC community called Harlerm. Our vision is to help females embrace and celebrate their identities, unique qualities, and contributions to society.
Together with community members, schools, NYCHA( New York Housing Authority), volunteers, and staff, we employ 12-week rites of passage program, products, and workshops to promote D.E.I. (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion), Elevate youth participation and leadership, and help shape the next generation of phenomenal women.
Since our conception in 2005 as a not-for-profit, our Rites of Passage program has helped women and girls find their true calling and develop their innate skills and abilities. But our recent 501c3 status has allowed us to help more females in BIPOC communities with workshops, products, and programs that help develop and support issues females encounter from puberty to the introduction of their menstrual cycle all the way through adolescence years and beyond.
We are a mission-driven, community-led, not-for-profit. Addressing the stages every female will go through. And we’ve worked hard to design a system that welcomes females of all ages and stages. We honor females and their contributions to society; we help them Discover, Empower, and Believe in their sense of self.
At SASS, we want to encourage females to take up leadership positions, learn about their civic obligations, become engaged in their communities, and grow in confidence and competence as individuals and as members of society.We are committed to what matters, allowing our daughters to be a part of the conversations at the round table and not only be the discussions of debate on the table. This is why every city should have SASS in its community.
