Meet our founder
Throughout my career, I have dedicated efforts toward the advancement of Black Women & Girls, Youth Leadership Development, Reproductive Justice, Dismantling Oppression, Prison Industrial Complex and Social Justice, that include curriculum and program design; creating intentional spaces that build bridges; and networking through partnership development. Through my 25 years of working in the non-profit sector, I am proud of my role in facilitating and identifying gaps to create programs that provide political education, leadership development, opportunities and resources to enrich leaders that can advocate for themselves and others. In 1998, I was inspired to create a network for Black Women to come together for positive dialogues and action. I imagined creating a safe space for Black Women & Girls to become stronger leaders, creating sisterhood through the experiences of sharing stories, and building meaningful relationships. That vision began surfacing in 2009, when I founded Our Rightful Place. From there, the Sacramento Sister Circle (SSC) was established; and continues to grow; both in member numbers, and in impact. In 2019, SSC reached an active online membership of 8,000+ women, and continues to encompass holistic health, wealth building, expanding our horizons, acquisition of knowledge, mentorship, and political engagement.
