sisterwoman vegan is a Black centred social enterprise. healing is resistance. while the majority of our services are open to all regardless of background, a Black centred approach means that all of the research, references and data used to structure our services and resources are derived from the Black experience (past, present and future), taking into account unique issues such as the fact that WE ARE DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED BY FOOD RELATED ILLNESSES SUCH AS DIABETES. the majority of businesses in the UK are white centred, they just don't advertise this fact.
"let me begin by saying that I came to theory because I was hurting - the pain within me was so intense that I could not go on living. I came to theory desperate, wanting to comprehend - to grasp what was happening around and within me. most importantly, I wanted to make the hurt go away. I SAW IN THEORY THEN A LOCATION FOR HEALING." - bell hooks
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SINGLE ISSUE STRUGGLE. sisterwoman vegan adopts a pro intersectional approach to veganism that takes into account considerations of class, race, gender and accessibility.
I BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF COMMUNITIES TO MAKE RADICAL CHANGE. we build spaces to foster community conversation, support and celebration.
MIND BODY AND SOUL. the focus is healing all parts of our selves, food is my medium of choice.
