With this episode, we conclude a series of four podcasts which have informed us about a variety of hot-button issues including the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, the shrinking resources available to refugees who were invited to resettle here in America, and the fight against voter suppression in California and across the nation. Today, we’re going to learn what’s being done to bring healing and hope to some of the most marginalized and oppressed people in our society: black women and other women of color. October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and I’m honored to introduce you to Alana C. Brown, the founder and Executive Director of The Safe Sisters Circle—an organization founded by black women in a historically black community serving Wards 7 & 8 of the Washington DC metro area. Alana knew from a young age she wanted to make a positive impact in her local community. She left DC to attend college in New York and then returned to DC and graduated from Georgetown with her law degree. Then, back to New York where she served as a prosecuting attorney in Manhattan. You’d think that’s it, right? Nope. Alana’s dream to help women back home never dissipated, it only grew stronger, and she eventually moved back to the area where she worked and volunteered. It wasn’t long before she recognized a need for representation among those serving survivors. And, sadly, it took even less time for some people to tell her not to do it. They’d say things like “your work isn’t needed here” and “you’ll never make it.” Obviously, Alana didn’t listen to the naysayers. She founded The Safe Sisters Circle, and she plans to grow and expand her service area. Alana talks fast, so buckle up, and get ready to meet an amazing African American woman who is making a big difference in the lives of women of color in Wards 7 & 8 in our nation’s capital. The Safe Sisters Circle is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides free culturally specific, holistic, and trauma-based services to Black women survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault primarily living in Washington, DC’s Wards 7 and 8. https://yournonprofitlife.com/ep29-alana-brown/
