The Mother House is located in Atlanta, Georgia in the historic West End neighborhood. The Mother House has been a vital part of Atlanta’s African American community. The house is composed of two parts: Sister Song and Sister Love.
Sister Song has been established since 1997 and their main focus is supporting and empowering women of color and their communities. According to Sister Song, the mission of the Sister Song Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective is to amplify and strengthen the collective voices of Indigenous women and women of color to ensure reproductive justice through securing human rights.
Sister Love was founded in 1989 by Dázon Dixon Diallo. Sister Love focuses on educating women of color on topics such as AIDS prevention, self-help and safer sex techniques. According to Sister Love, their mission is to eradicate the adverse impact of HIV/AIDS and other reproductive health challenges upon women and their families through education, prevention, support and human rights advocacy in the United States and around the world.
