Sisterly LOVE (Leading Others Via Education) is a program facilitated by Mazzoni Center in collaboration with a community advisory board of area trans women, with the aim of developing leadership skills and building community among trans women/trans femmes in Philadelphia. We organize and build power around the self-identified needs of the community, host workshops and events, and conduct targeted street outreach to connent trans women with resources. The goal of Sisterly LOVE is to increase the capacity of trans women in Philadelphia to organize around issues affecting their community.
Sisterly LOVE is a safer space for anyone that identifies along the trans feminine spectrum.
We meet on the third Friday of each month from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at Mazzoni Center, 1348 Bainbridge Street. Past workshops have included: self-defense, intergenerational dialogue, professional etiquette/resume-buidling, and "keeping our sisters safe."
