dc.description.abstract Sista II Sista is a Brooklyn-wide, community-based organization located in Bushwick, New York. It is a collective of working class young and adult Black and Latino women building together to model a society based on liberation and love. The organization is dedicated to working with young women of color to develop personal, spiritual and collective power. Sista II Sista is committed to fighting for justice and creating alternatives to the systems we live in by making social, cultural and political change. Sista II Sista’s involved in a variety of projects. Three examples of their work include: The Freedom School for Young Women of Color, The Big Mouth Project which is a series of workshops and talks on violence against women, ageism, sexism, sexual harassment, peer pressure and understanding multiple expressions of oppression and privilege. Another project is Sista Liberated Ground, a community action project to fight violence against women of color in their community without relying on the police. en_US
