I want to say “Congratulations!” Sisterhood Agenda would like to present you and Black Women in Europe with our new Sisterhood of Greatness Award. The awards ceremony will take place at our gathering, Celebrating Sisterhood: 25 Years of Service, at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 1:00pm-5:00pm. Will you be able to join us?
As a long-standing Sisterhood Agenda global partner, this is our time to shine! Our first Sisterhood of Greatness Awards are presented to several founders and activists who represent and exemplify a code of excellence in consciousness, character, and conduct. Celebrating our 25-year anniversary is a testament to the collective spirit and strength of our constituency including over 5,000 global agencies throughout 36 countries, who share our purposeful focus on women and girls while growing a powerful force for positive social change.
During the devastating 2017 storms, hurricanes Irma and Maria, our newly opened SEA: Sisterhood Empowerment Academy on St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands was severely damaged. We rebuilt it, stronger than ever, and remain vigilant in our ongoing support of millions of women and girls through partnerships, training, projects, programs, and products.
To mark this occasion, we decided to share our 25-year anniversary within our sisterhood by spotlighting the efforts of other amazing women and girls who have made a difference by standing up, stepping out and lifting us up to make the world a better place. Together, we realize the collective bond and power we impose when eradicating the issues we choose to champion. Therefore, we commemorate our anniversary by celebrating others!
Sisterhood is the foundation for collective empowerment. Our sisterhood is diverse and inclusive because we are all unique. Striving for meaningful connection, we want women and girls to know that they are never alone.
Knowing that time is of the essence, we hope that you can join us for this special event. Please reply regarding award acceptance and participation in the award ceremony at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture as soon as possible. Thank you for all that you do.
In the Spirit of Sisterhood,
Angela D. Coleman, MBA, CNM
