ABOUT THE BROTHERHOOD SISTER SOL
For nearly 30 years, The Brotherhood Sister Sol (BroSis) has been at the forefront of social justice, educating, organizing and training to challenge inequity and champion opportunity for all. With a focus on Black and Latinx youth, BroSis is where young people claim the power of their history, identity and community to build the future they want to see.
Through unconditional love, around-the-clock support and wraparound programming, we make space for Black and Latinx young people to examine their roots, define their stories and awaken their agency.
ANNOUNCING THE GAP X DAPPER DAN X BROSIS COLLAB FEATURING OUR CO-FOUNDERS
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our latest collaboration with Gap and Dapper Dan – a campaign that celebrates our partnership and Harlem. To highlight the Dapper Dan/Gap collaboration, Dapper Dan invited BroSis co-founders Jason Warwin and Khary Lazarre-White to appear in the campaign, each celebrating their shared connection with the Harlem community.
We are dedicated to inspiring and nurturing the next generation, creating a legacy of hope and positive change in the very place where our journey began.
The most rewarding aspect of our work is of course the young people. Their bravery, their strength, and resilience. It is a wonder to witness them learning, growing, succeeding, and seeking change.
– Khary Lazarre-White

WHY THIS MATTERS
BroSis sees the challenges facing Black and Latinx young people every day because they live them. From educational opportunity to social and economic mobility, they see how everything is interconnected — including the barriers they face. That’s why their community fights and unites for equity and justice for every young person.
WHY YOU CAN DO
Young people need support, guidance, education, mentorship, and love. Elevate the next generation by donating, volunteering, becoming a mentor, or contributing your expertise as a guest speaker with BroSis.
