We are devoted to ensuring that Black Women and those that love US are equipped with the tools to tap into our power within and collectively to navigate systems that have been traumatizing and harmful to our existence. We ARE Black Women, who lead, advocate and change the world for the better through Community Building, Relationahip Building, Engagement, Advocacy, Policy and Practice Change, & Political, Economic, and Social Justice.

We are also home of the Sacramento Sister Circle, an organization under the umbrella of ORP. With a membership of 9,000+, it is a network for Black Women to come together for positive dialogue, sharing our stories, building strong relationships, and creating an open and safe space for us to become better leaders, mothers, allies, friends, and WOMEN.

“Until we as women have a better understanding of our legacies, we cannot take Our Rightful Place.”
After many a tribulation, I found myself feeling lonely. My friends that I believed were ride or die, turned out to be ride and bounce. I reached out [to the Sister Circle FB network] and received an overwhelming response. It was overwhelming at first, and I only responded to a few. A couple years later I got brave, and tried again. Once again I was welcomed and found many other women seeking connection. I have made some wonderful REAL friends that I am enjoying getting to know.
I love how this is a #SafeSpace for black women to express themselves and engage in socially conscious #Wokeness. This venue exemplifies #BlackGirlMagic; there are thousands of sistah's from all walks of life, with all types of experiences, disciplines and stories. I love how I can post [on our FB group] about just about anything and there is a sistah will respond "I got you.".... The Sacramento Sister Circle is a game changer. As a black woman, it is EXTREMELY challenging to find a venue where you can be your true and authentic self. From the bottom of my heart I love each and every one of ya'll. I can truly see myself in every Sister Circle member! And that is why the Sister Circle is so #DOPE!
