In April 2021, the PTBi supported SisterWeb Doula Collective launched their Support the Circle of Strength fundraising campaign with the goal of raising on million dollars to serve 

"SisterWeb's Circle of Strength Fund is an invitation to our community, asking you to be a part of our CIRCLE of Black, Latinx, and Pacific Islander birthing families and doulas. Together, our STRENGTH will ensure ALL families in San Francisco have healthy pregnancies and births and can welcome their children with joy and pride."



The funds generated by the campaign will help SisterWeb:

  • Build a workforce of Black, Latinx, and Pacific Islander birthing professionals to provide doula services.
  • Pair more than 100 birthing families with a culturally aligned team of doulas.
  • Ensure that SisterWeb's doulas can work full-time and receive benefits during and beyond the economic impact of the pandemic.
  • Increase agency infrastructure by adding critical HR and program positions.
  • Hire a Human Resources professional to support with staff retention and building sustainable infrastructure.
  • Provide essential PPE for mothers, pregnant people, families, and doulas​
