PROGRAM DIRECTOR

I work with the Resilient Sisterhood Project because the environment allows me to learn. Not knowing is not shamed, and research for social media work and projects is encouraged. I have learned a lot since joining the team, and there is no end in sight to that at RSP.

Ramya Kumar

PROGRAM COORDINATOR

As a passionate health equity activist, I wholly resonate with RSP's mission of identifying and addressing the barriers to reproductive health that Black women face as a result of systemic injustices. I am honored to be part of RSP as we spread awareness about issues in reproductive justice through educational, wide-reaching efforts.

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE COORDINATOR

I work for RSP because I have always sought out spaces that strive to protect and advocate for the well-being of people of color. As a firm believer that the environment has a great impact on the health of communities, I plan to use my knowledge and passion to improve health outcomes for black women.

Cierra Brown

Cierra Brown

PROGRAM COORDINATOR

I work for RSP because my experience in the United States has taught me that advocacy and change is not often taken up by the public and government until key stakeholders force them to pay attention. Health, especially reproductive health, has huge implications on the welfare of a community and interventions in this area are essential to further any higher form of progress and reform in the Black community. I cherish the opportunity to work with empowered women in a space dedicated to uplifting the voices of these stakeholders and taking steps towards this progress.

RSP is delighted to welcome our 2024 Summer Cohort of Program Interns:
