Led by Bella BAHHS, the Sister Survivor Network amplifies the civic voice of Black women and girls who have been harmed by America’s prison policies. Sister Survivor practices seditious compassion in the face of America’s addiction to incarceration and violence.
Far too often Black girls die, leaving bloody palm prints at the threshold of Black womanhood. Far too many Black women are sent to prison for far too long. Black women and girls are often the unseen and unheard victims of police violence. Sister Survivor marries arts activism, direct action and community collectivity. Sister Survivor holds arts events, back-to-school drives, courthouse observations, and sends care packages to Black women and girls harmed by carceral trauma.
Sister Survivor has one mission: Cut carceral culture and construct community.
