A photo interview series of the women behind @sistersunchained . Vanessa Ly Q. Who do you think of when you hear the phrase “We Are Because She Was?” A. I am because she gave me life. I have her stubbornness to not give up, her thrive to work tirelessly and the Incan Ancestor magick that I could not ignore. Her reasons for being in my life for a short time are her own. The lessons and pain of her absence turned into unconditional love once I became a mother. At the darkest of times, the lineage of the strong women she passed to me runs through my veins, takes over and continues to move forward. #iambecauseshewas #radicalabolitionisthealing #community #justice #love #sistersunchained

Happy 64th Birthday Ma! Growing up you used to play this song about a little boy who gave his mother a handwritten bill. In it, he listed all the chores he had completed and the price for doing so -which was a total of $14.75. The mom took the bill, turned it over and wrote, “For the nine months I carried you, growing inside me- no charge. For the nights I sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you- no charge. For the toys, food and clothes, and for wiping your nose- there’s no charge. When you add it all up the real cost of my love is no charge.” The little boy took the bill, tore it up and said, “Paid in full.” Thank you for loving me unconditionally and freely. Without your priceless, never-ending love I wouldn’t be who I am today... however, if I were the child in this song, I wouldn’t have ripped the bill or wrote paid in full. I would’ve pulled a number from your book, thanked you for the amazing love and said, “You still owe me $14.75 though.” 🤣 I miss you so much and I think about you every single day! Enjoy your birthday up there. 💜 -Tre #happybirthday #iambecauseshewas #womenshistorymonth #womeninspiringwomen #iremembermama #shirleycaesar #033155 #110212 #loveumissuneedu

“We Are Because She Was” A photo interview series featuring the women behind @sistersunchained . Ayana Aubourg Q: What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “We Are Because She Was?” A: Where would I be without my grandmother’s prayers and my mother’s friendship? I come from a lineage of war-ready women who fight from a place of love..who fight to redefine love.. and who fight for all those they love. Who would I be without their strength and protection? #iambecauseshewas #sistersunchained #radicalabolitionisthealing #empowerment

“We Are Because She Was” A photo interview series of the women behind Sisters Unchained. Meron Teklehaimanot Q. Who do you think of when you hear the phrase “We Are Because She Was?” A. I am because she was resilient. When I reflect on the women I’ve become I can’t help but think about my mother and how much of who I am and who I am not has been shaped by her. Her ability to keep going no matter what life has thrown her way is something that has been powerful to watch. I’m forever grateful to come from this beautiful being. 💜 #iambecauseshewas #sistersunchained #radicalabolitionisthealing #empowerment

New ink in remembrance for my mama. I hope the angels know what they have. Miss her every day of my life. Doing my best to make her proud. 💯. If I can ask one favor from all my insta fam, it would be that you let those close to you whether it be family or a close friend that you love them, and what they mean to you. Tomorrow’s never promised. Cherish the time you have. 🤟🏼💋 #IAmBecauseSheWas

It’s been a year, and I still remember it like it was yesterday. I hope you know that I always carry you with me. I still grab my phone in anticipation to call you when I need advice, until I realize you won’t be answering this time. Every time I feel like I can’t do life anymore, I read your letter to me and I am filled with hope. I pray you’re looking down on little Ana and me and that it fills your heart with gladness. To my heart, I miss you and I will always love you. 🕯 . . #IAmBecauseSheWas

I dotted dragonfly in memory of Jacki💜. . . . Tonight, we remember all of the good memories and experiences shared with my best friend’s Mum, Jacki Krostewitz who lost her life a year ago today to pancreatic cancer. . This piece was inspired by her, her love of nature and the countless dragonfly decorations around the house. . I still sell prints of this 12”x9” piece for $80 with half of each sale being donated to @pancreaticcancercanada and have been so fortunate to have been able to donate over $1,000 to support cancer research so far. .

October 1, 2011. My mother’s funeral. If I could I would choose her million times over. Again and again. She was the perfect mother for me. | Deeply flawed. Generous to a fault. Complete introvert. Peace keeper. Dignity restorer. Astute business woman. Unparalleled beautiful heart. Jesus soul. | She was, and always will be God’s personal print of love upon my life. I mean that in the truest sense. Anything good I am or might be, is because of the woman she was and remains. #becomingmymothersdaughter #lovedherlikewhoa #shewasthebest #iambecauseshewas #eternallygrateful
