Mission Statement

The Safe Sisters Circle is a women of color founded and operated organization that provides culturally specific, trauma informed, and holistic services to young Black women and girl survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual abuse in Washington, DC's Ward 7 and 8.


Right now our main projects are our East of the River Women's Legal Services Project and Keep Black Girls Safe DC (legal project) providing survivors with representation in Civil Protection Order hearings and family law cases. The Safe Sisters Circle will provide these legal services while addressing the various barriers our clients face as a result of their past trauma as well as our clients’ disadvantages based on their cultural, ethnic, social, and/or sexual identities.
