Mission

Sis & Non-Cis (SNC) is an organization committed to healing, affirming and protecting young girls, women, and gender non-conforming people of color. Through political education and community organizing, SNC centers the leadership of those most impacted by racism and cis-hetero normative ableist patriarchy.

Issues

  • Housing Security
  • Public Safety 
  • Education Justice
  • Food Sovereignty

After years of abuse and violence at our previous organizing home, we envisioned a place that respected, valued, affirmed our leadership as women of color. Sis & Non-Cis exists to provide young girls, women, and gender non-conforming individuals of color with the resources and a space free of racial and gender discrimination. 

The founders of Sis & Non-Cis seek to support the strategic development and formation through people-powered and individual donor fundraising. We are raising funds to provide stipends to the organization's founders, hiring an organizational development consultant to conduct a strategic planning process to formalize policies, structure, and program. The funds raised will also support organizational accounts, Zoom, G-Suite, Link Tree, and Grammarly, and support the purchase of technology, laptops or iPads, necessary to conduct operations.

why we're doing it

Vision 

Black and Brown girls, women, and gender non-conforming people are at the forefront of movements fighting to dismantle oppressive systems while navigating the complexities of gender-based violence, racism, and classism. Black and Brown girls, women, and gender non-conforming people deserve spaces free of racism and cis-hetero normative ableist patriarchy.

Sis and Non-Cis (SNC) envisions a world where girls, women, and gender non-conforming people of color are safe, affirmed, and protected. SNC is a youth and women-led organization committed to centering the leadership of young girls, women, and gender non-conforming people of color through political education and community organizing. SNC comprises youth between the age of 14 - 25 who undertake organizing campaigns centering Housing Security, Public Safety, Education Justice, and Food Sovereignty.
