My Sister's Keeper

Empowering Women, Building Advocates, Graduating 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.
