Athena’s Sisters creates revolutionary programming and partnerships to advance the mental and physical wellness for all active duty and veteran women.
What is our goal in the long run?
Athena’s Sisters is an organization for all military women to use revolutionary expressions to grow in dignity and honor.
Our members empower themselves through a sisterhood created by mind, body, and heart healing. Our artistic advocacy is building a community of courage.
How we build power?
Our two primary programs, Creating Sisterhood and Community Healing each meet once a month.
Creating Sisterhood Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month. These meetings are for military women only. During Creating Sisterhood Meetings we focus on issues that are important and relevant to military women, how we working to address those issues, and how we can work together through artistic advocacy to create the changes that we need.
Community Healing Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month. These meetings are open to members, supporters, family, friends, and sponsors. We recruit a guest speaker to educate us on healing services available to military women in the community while learning a new art technique.
Through these two primary programs, bonds are built among members, supporters, sponsors, families, and communities. Those bonds ties us together with our shared experiences as a framework to move forward to create safe spaces for military women, to use artistic advocacy to shape policies that directly affect us, and to be the change that we want to see.
