TOGETHER WE RISE
The Junious sisters, Alyssa and Toni, created Soultry Sisters to empower women to live creative and healthy lives. They were born and raised in San Diego, California and wanted to give back to the arts and wellness community in North County.
Soultry Sisters believe that arts and wellness is a birthright and should be accessible to all. Our mission is to address the lack of representation of diverse race and socioeconomic status in the wellness industry by providing affordable and accessible events for women of color. We collaborate with female entrepreneurs, women-led businesses, and community-based organizations to increase visibility of the diverse women in our community and connect women of color to these necessary wellness resources. We strive to make wellness more equitable and empower women of color to live vibrant and creative lives. We believe holistic health and wellness is the connection of mind, body, soul and community. Our events help reframe health from an individual perspective to a communal approach. Through building community, we help support and celebrate our individual and collective healing journeys.
