Sisters Empowering Sisters

These portraits show the powerful and knowing faces of the women who make up Sisters Empowering Sisters, a peer based support group for women who are dual diagnosed with addiction and mental health issues.  It was held within Community Connections in Washington, D.C.  The photographs were created for use in a documentary about Community Connections produced by Video/Action, and for a book, written by Executive Director Maxine Harris, which features the stories of these women.
