The mission of SisterSong is to amplify and strengthen the collective voices of Indigenous women and women of color to ensure reproductive justice through securing human rights. We fight equally for the right to bear – or not to bear – a child, along with the subsequent and necessary enabling conditions to realize these rights. We implement our work within the structure of three national impact goals:

SUPPORT: To create spaces for Indigenous women and women of color to strategize on developing a national movement of women of color for reproductive justice.

MENTOR: To build the capacity of Indigenous women and women of color organizations and to increase their visibility, sustainability, effectiveness, and influence.

ADVOCATE: To lift the voices and perspectives of Indigenous women and women of color into the mainstream reproductive rights movement, into communities of color, and into public policies.
