S3 – Striving Sisters Speak!!!
Striving Sisters Speak!!! (S³) is a group of young minority women in low-income neighborhoods who are working to create coalitions of social justice in their communities.
“I began working with S³ last July and helped to organize a community festival encouraging youth activism in my neighborhood.”
“I am proud to say that I am a community organizer.”

March 5th, 2009 – Update!’
We went to D.C. for the Inauguration from January 16th to the 20th. It was the most exciting event that we have done in S3 so far! Now it makes us want to become the President! It made us open our eyes and realize how many opportunities we had in the world as young black women. We are hoping to explore many more journeys. That’s about it.
