Sisters/Siblings in Solidarity (SSIS) exist to nurture and nourish a multiracial community of people (non-men) committed to building sustainable relationships while divesting ourselves from dominant/white supremacy culture and focusing our attention on anti-racism work. We do this with truth and love – a razor’s edge of integrity with a wide embrace of mistakes, the unraveling, messiness, and all that comes with dismantling and learning to do better. We recognize the sacredness of each other and our work and proceed with mindfulness and care. We share our lived experience transparently in a way that doesn’t center whiteness or indulge fragility. Our work together includes a monthly gathering over Zoom to deepen and strengthen solidarity and our anti-racism work. Each month there is a topic with questions for reflection. Calls include a teaching, sharing from attendees and clear action steps. This is one way we stay connected and focused and in the stream of anti-racism work.
