BENEFITING: Sisters Of The Road
Kim and Amy have been together so long (19 years!), we think you should celebrate it. In fact, we encourage you to donate as a way to further the good work we like to do and support in the world. If you want to be supercute, you could give in increments of $19, $38, $190. Either way, everyone will feel loved and supported. Thanks!
Sisters hasn’t actually spiffed out their charity page yet, so let us tell you about them. They are awesome. We knew they had a great reputation nationally with folks who advocate for the poor and homeless. Stone got to learn more about them when she led a training on nonviolent conflict skills for their cafe staff last year. What amazing people!
The most obvious part of their work is the Cafe with its commitment to “creating truly healthy meals that nourish the body and are made with socially and environmentally responsible foods.” Meals are available for barter, a low cost or sometimes for free. (The food is, by the way, delicious.)
What really sets Sisters apart though is their deep commitment to nonviolence and systemic change. This shows up in the way they build community and treat their patrons and in long-term community organizing campaigns.
