ABC7 Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month - Sol Sisters / October 13, 2015

Christine Shayesteh firmly believes in equality for women who are under-served and under-resourced. This belief led her to create Sol Sisters, Inc. (@solsistersorg), a Bay Area non-profit that serves as a platform to empower ALL women. With over 300 professional women volunteers collectively over the past two years, Sol Sisters provides assistance to women who have experienced domestic violence, to teen moms who need help getting on track to high school graduation and to excel to higher education, to homeless women getting back on their feet, and many more. The organization provides access to mental health services, beauty services such as styling to build self-esteem in preparation for the workforce and college, and expressive arts that promote holistic healing. Their most recent cause is fighting child sex trafficking and supporting victims - Sol Sisters is hosting a workshop in Oakland this month (#IAMHERSISTER) to raise awareness. Join the effort and help women's voices be heard! Photos courtesy of Sol Sisters.
