Susan Jensen and Carole McMonigal are not sisters, but have been such close friends for the past 25 years, and have been asked countless times if they actually are. They have dedicated their careers to health and wellness. Together, they envisioned creating a line of stylish and functional activewear that serves two purposes:
• To use inspired messages to focus on affirmations and positivity
• To create a revenue stream designated to fight sex trafficking of children
Clothing designs are selected with varying shapes and body styles in mind. The mission conscious clothing will quickly become go-to pieces to be worn time and time again. The power of the inspirations is huge…the messaging is based on the mind/body connection that believes you can change your mind, change your body, change your life.
SisterSquad has chosen to partner with local organizations that work to fight sex trafficking, as benefactors of profits from the company. Trafficking women and children for sexual exploitation is the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world. About 2 million children are exploited every year in the global commercial sex trade. Preventing this violation of health, safety, and human rights is necessary for the well-being and healthy future of our people and communities.
