2024 STSI GALA

Sister to Sister International, Inc. (STSI) is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that links women,  girls and families of African descent globally, to the resources that connect, advance and strengthen them.

We do this through advocacy, education and the promotion of African culture. 

 

Developing healthy lifestyles is a cornerstone of the organization. 

Our primary areas of focus include Health and Wellness, Education and Global Affairs.

To this end, we sponsor health symposia and campaigns, personal and professional development workshops and seminars; fundraisers to enable charitable contributions and student scholarships; global briefings; communications & academic enrichment programs for youth; publish periodic Newsletters and a Newsflash to promote advocacy and information sharing; dialogue with legislators on key issues affecting women and families; support UN conferences, network with women from all over the world and collaborate with partners to advance our causes.

Sister to Sister, Inc. Still I Rise Repo

DOWNLOADHERE

We are proud to unveil this baseline research report that provides a snapshot on Black women and girls in Westchester County. This report entitled,

Still I Rise”

is an extension of our work that began in 2015 with the Obama White House Council on Women and Girls. We have since utilized a collective impact framework and built a cross-section of over 25 stakeholders, working collaboratively to improve outcomes for Black women and girls in Westchester related to STEM, STEAM and Health Curricula and Careers; Teen Pregnancy Prevention, Maternal Health and Healthy Lifestyles; Suspensions, Trauma & the Juvenile Justice System and Entrepreneurship, Pay Equity and Economic Prosperity.


This groundbreaking research is meant to bolster our efforts and assist us in managing by fact. This report is also a testament to the resilience of Black women and girls, many of whom have achieved against the odds, rising to key positions, in government, like the Hon. Andrea Stewart Cousins, NYS Senate Majority Leader. She is the first woman to hold this position in NYS, as well as other Black women who have been trailblazers in the judicial, business, academia, and the arts, to name a few.
