Welcome to brave sis project
Fakery-free zone. If you came here just to check a box, think again.
Founded in 2019, Brave Sis Project offers history, learning, awareness, and sisterhood for BIPOC women and their friends.
We uplift Black, Brown, Asian & Indigenous Foremothers and she-roes to help build a practice of deeper awareness, self-care and pride.
We do this through publications, speaking, and workshops, history (sistory) lessons, events, and more #inspiration.

BRAVE SIS PROJECT: LIFESTYLE & LEARNING FOR BIPOC WOMEN & THEIR FRIENDS
Through our print and digital publications and #sistorylessons on Instagram, you will encounter and celebrate incredible Black, Brown, Asian, and Indigenous women in U.S. history.
Our workshops, teach-ins, and speaking events seek to help build authentic, deeper, and more sustainable practices that de-center default whiteness, use storytelling and story-making as a way to strengthen our awareness, celebration, self-care, compassion and empathy, and social and community impact.
Celebrate our sisterhood and gather strength and inspiration from women—both household names and forgotten she-roes—who helped change the course of history.
