SISTERS UNCHAINED

"WE ARE THE DAUGHTERS, SISTERS, COUSINS, FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES OF THOSE CURRENTLY OR FORMERLY INCARCERATED

we are the voices

the heartbreak

the alchemists

and the tears

 

we are our mothers pain,

and her mother’s pain,

uniting

to break the cycle of humiliation,

dehumanization, and violence

we resist racism, sexism,

and all forms of oppression

we face as women of color

living

our intersectional identities

 

we are striving to become

our highest selves

in a loving space that is necessary

for us to heal together

this is a loving space that is necessary

for us to build our collective power

 

this is a loving space

that is necessary

 

our love

is necessary

we are home

we are becoming

Sisters Unchained

So much more than just a summer program. Our experiences together have been heavily rooted in
1. Love and 2. Courage.
A major aspect of the program is to provide our young women with knowledge on oppressive systems like the prison industrial complex and the negative impact it has on our communities. What makes this program so special is the development of our sisterhood. That is who we are to one another. We are sisters. We are family. We are sisters who empower one another. Who support one another. Who challenge one another. Who have the courage to love one another in a world that tells us often that we are not worthy or deserving. Sisters Unchained is about learning the truth about ourselves and learning how to hold on to that truth.  

NO COINCIDENCE LIFE BROUGHT US TOGETHER

as we heal we weave our dreams into reality

to give a voice to those who have lost theirs

whose emotions cannot be seen

through the cathartic release of our pain

we learn to walk unafraid"
