Programs like Standing in our Power (SiOP) are needed now more than ever as we prepare for a shift in our nation’s demographics. In July 2012 the Center for American Progress released an issue brief on “The State of Women of Color in the United States.” The issue brief takes an in-depth look at the status of women of color and makes clear that our voices are missing at a time when national demographic trends continue to shift toward women of color becoming the majority among all women. Women of color today are largely underrepresented in the national debate on key issues, including reproductive health care, women’s rights, and the economy—despite the direct impact these issues have on us personally, as well as on our families and communities. SiOP is proactively building the leadership and capacity of women of color across generations who are preparing to take a seat at the tables where our voices have been missing, and to do so in a way that transforms what it means to lead. Take a look at this short excerpt of the SiOP 2013 film and to learn more about this important work. Click here to download information about SiOP and upcoming programs for 2014 and 2015.
