Sister Warriors Action Fund

Host Organization: Tides Advocacymdi-circle-small SAN FRANCISCO , CA , USA mdi-circle-small


The Sister Warriors Action Fund is led by systems-impacted and formerly or currently incarcerated women and trans people of all genders. Our work centers shifting power through organizing, advocacy, and policy and electoral work.

SWAF uplifts the leadership of those who have experienced and continue to experience the devastating and intergenerational effects of incarceration, poverty, and gender-based violence in our work to end the criminalization of our communities. This means that we are committed to ending the violence of the criminal legal system, as well as undoing the harms of foster care, welfare, and other institutions that participate in criminalizing and controlling us. Our mission is to build a transformative movement that secures justice, opportunity, and self-determination for all.

Finding the power in our lived experiences is key to the Sister Warriors framework. It’s also the basis for the Freedom Charter, a visionary document created by 500+ members that serves as the North Star for our work.  In a political moment where the safety, freedom and dignity of our communities are increasingly at risk, it is a necessity — not a luxury — that we ground our transformative work in the experiences of women, trans people of all genders, and people of color. SWAF is invested in building movement leadership spaces that sees the liberation of all of our people as deeply interwoven and inseparable from one another.

We’re inviting all those who believe in this vision to become members and join us, working hand in hand to realize the possibility of the Freedom Charter in all the spaces that we collectively hold.
