We are a healing circle supporting Black women who have experienced trauma; looking forward to a peaceful world by helping women join hands to help heal our community.

This town hall meeting will discuss some alarming statistics, who is at risk, and how best to protect our loved ones. Bring your questions.

According to a December 2020 report from the CommonWealth Fund:

Black and indigenous women are two to three times more likely than their white peers to die from pregnancy complications.

The US ranks last overall among industrialized countries in the rates of maternal death.

The maternal death rate for Black women at 37.1 per 100,000 pregnancies is 2.5 times the ratio for white women (14.7) and three times the ratio for Hispanic women (11.8).

That makes it especially important for Black and indigenous women to be able to advocate for proper care.

A Black mother with a college education is at 60 percent greater risk of maternal death than a white or Hispanic woman with less than a high school education.

This town hall meeting will discuss who is at risk, and how best to protect our loved ones.

We are pleased to have Dr. Janine James, Obstetrician / Gynecologist, share her experiences as a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist in the Milwaukee area.

Come with your questions. Leave knowledgeable and be empowered.

“Sisters Talk”

“I really enjoyed ‘Sister talk’ it was motivating, eye-opening, and a safe space to express my innermost fears.”  L Bennett

The Next Sisters Talk is Saturday, September 25th 12:00-1:30 online                

Sisters Talk is a healing circle that provides a safe CONFIDENTIAL SPACE for Afrikan/Black women to talk about issues that concern them. We know what Black women are going through because we’ve gone through it too.  When women come in, they can talk, or just listen. We offer guest speakers and certified Peer Specialists who facilitate the healing circles and see women one on one if needed. Peer Specialists also make referrals to community resources.

We offer our listening hearts because we know that listening and belonging are essential to healing. We talk about our experiences as Black women in a SAFE CONFIDENTIAL PLACE. We offer online and in person circles.

Sisters Talk Healing circles are held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays 12:00-1:30 p.m.
