My Sister's Keeper

My Sister's Keeper

MSK logoSexual violence, unintended pregnancy and the consequences of risky sexual behavior are among the leading causes that women drop out of college. The Black Women's Health Imperative is committed to keeping Black women on track. We're creating a movement to empower women, build advocates and graduate leaders.  

My Sister's Keeper (MSK) is our advocacy and leadership-building initiative for women on Historically Black College and University (HBCU) campuses. 

There’s strength in the united voices of women across the HBCU campus network. MSK encourages every woman on campus to get involved, get informed and use her voice as her sister’s keeper and strongest advocate. 

Through MSK, collegiate women will support each other in making healthy choices, protect one another from intimate partner violence and serve as advocacy leaders on campus and in the community.

MSK provides programs, tools and resources to help collegiate women:

  • Foster dialogue among their peers about sexual health, reproductive justice and intimate partner violence
  • Advocate for policies that protect their decision-making, ensure their safety and promote healthy relationships
  • Raise their campus’ awareness of sexual health and reproductive rights issues that impact women on campus and in the community
  • Conduct campus-based workshops and trainings

Domestic violence and sexual assault are among the top reasons women drop out of college. In 2017, we’re teaming up with a wearable technology company to help college women protect themselves on and off campus.
