values

black centred

sisterwoman vegan is a Black centred social enterprise. the majority of our services are open to all regardless of background. however, 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 and heart disease. the majority of businesses in the UK are white centred, they just don't advertise this fact. 

literature informed

the resources and services we provide are informed by peer reviewed, academic articles and papers such as these resources.

 

"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

intersectional

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. 

sustainable

veganism is a movement for people and planet. i limit food waste, buy local where possible and work with suppliers and partners committed to sustainability.

community focused

i believe in the power of communities to make radical change. i build spaces to foster community conversation, support and celebration.

"healing has to be consistent with life itself, if it isn’t, then it is not healing. the components have to be from life"
