An increasing number of high-school girls of Pan-African descent are engaging in self-harm, suicidal attempts, unhealthy and abusive relationships, feelings of self-hate and beliefs that they don’t matter or that they don’t belong. We believe that when a young person is affirmed and provided with essential tools in a transformational, safe, and loving space, she will always and in all ways remember who she truly is. We support her with unlocking what is already within her – a power and spirit that is unshakable and unwavering. Join us as we celebrate 10 years and over 1,200 lives touched.


Feed Your Soul

In honor of the 10 year anniversary of the Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit, we are encouraging women and girls to meditate on this material.  Create a book club, host a listening party or movie night.

Purchase a Shirt

Our theme this year is Own the Mic and we are dedicating the collaborative work that we do with high school girls to the women and girls whose names we want to remember.  Shirts include the names of 4 women or girls that changed everything.

Join the Run

Sistas Run New York 2017 is a fundraising run/walk, presented by Fastgirls, in support of the Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit. This run/walk covers the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg Bridges (approx 5 mi).

We believe that we have everything we need right at our fingertips and that we are just one conversation away from having this summit funded through perpetuity. However we cannot make this possible without your support. Please support us with making our 10th Annual Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit possible.
