SisterLove’s work starts with the personal. Its members are women who are at risk of contracting HIV-AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Their lives are threatened; they often live in poverty and regularly face a hostile and even violent environment. SisterLove’s organizing strategy is straightforward, and it begins with personal transformation: the organization believes that people have to accept themselves before they can engage in public policy matters.
