  • About This Program

    Self-care is the best care. Rooted in the resilience and power of our ancestors, the SisterCARE Alliance emerged out of a pursuit to reinforce the strong survival-based connection made between women with a more formalized and supportive network. This act of coming together in an organized and strategic fashion to care for ourselves and our community is intentional.

    The mission of the Sis, You Ok? National Tour provides an interactive experience of the strategic self-care program focusing on Black women's wellness with support and educational strategies on how to identify and address their needs.

    Join us at the Gantt to participate in this interactive community wellness education experience, designed to be mentally nourishing for all who attend.
