Sisterhood(verb), Inc. started in 2014 as one idea and one T-shirt in hopes to begin action-oriented conversations about how women of color can begin to look within to define sisterhood and live it as a truth, not a trend. Thanks to so many women pouring love and thought into it, today Sisterhood(verb), Inc. has a mission to curate opportunities for women to come together through education, art, healing, community-building, and customized consulting services.
You may be wanting to create, nourish, and explore sisterhood for your community and looking for a place to start. You may have a thriving definition of sisterhood and looking to build, teach, and grow. You may be an executive who wants to put their dedication to equity to work. You are among friends and kin here. Reach out. Support. Spread the word. Start the conversation, and together, we can manifest the community, safety, and revolution we long for...
Meet Tayllor Johnson
Poet, Writer, Performer, Educator, Public Speaker, Founder of Sisterhood(verb), Inc.
TAYLLOR JOHNSON IS AN ARTIST, performer, educator, and founder of Sisterhood(verb), Inc. A published poet, she has been writing and performing her poetry and plays for over ten years. She is committed to using art to voice unspoken truths and guides people to discover and speak their truth to define their liberation. At Mount Holyoke College, where Tayllor received her bachelor's degree in Psychology, she began the journey of defining sisterhood and its importance in her life. Pursuing her master's degree at the Center for Experimental Humanities at New York University allowed her to expand on the intersectionality of community and arts integration in education, which led to Sisterhood(verb), Inc.
Tayllor's experience in community building, advocacy, social justice, and spiritual healing further feeds her mission to find new ways poetry can empower the underrepresented, soothe the wounded, and disturb the status quo, setting us all on a path to freedom.
Poetic communication can alter
minds and change lives.

Mount Holyoke College,
Author and Educator
"Tayllor has the rare combination of qualities that include both artistic creativity and the ability to execute. She has a firm grasp on the implementation of vision and invoking emotive expression from her students. It was a pleasure to have a truly talented artist like Taylor work with our middle school youth."
Melany Mendoza, Mass Mentoring Partnership, Manager of Targeted Communities
"Tayllor Johnson has an extraordinary gift for combining her sparkling talents for speaking truth and painting visions of humanity through poetry, with her compassion and enthusiasm for working with youth and enduring devotion to a socially just world. I have watched both middle-school and college students alike marvel in the joy and intensity Tayllor brings to spoken word performance, and walk away as I have myself from seeing and hearing her inspired to join and organize with others to make the world a better place."
