The Quann Sisters
Identical twin sisters, writers, artists, and models TK Wonder and Cipriana Quann, also known as the Quann Sisters, are often celebrated for their keen sense of style, admired for their advocacy for diversity/inclusivity in the fashion industry, and renowned for their stance on social issues.
Through their advocacy work and personal essays, they've shared their experiences with discrimination and how they overcame bullying. In addition, they've talked about their tumultuous childhoods and healing from trauma, turning their pain into a message of triumph by encouraging women to embrace their inner and outer beauty without conforming to the backward ideals of stereotypical definitions of beauty.
Recently, they co-founded the online platform arRested Voices Lifted (AVL), a community and safe space designed to amplify the voices of the unheard who are adversely affected by discrimination, abuse, and systemic racism while providing ways of support through education, healing, and storytelling.
"We have always believed in the power of using one's voice as the catalyst for action and change. Supporting an imperative organization such as MADRE aligns with our deep passion for activism and amplifying voices and causes that deserve the spotlight."
MADRE is thrilled to welcome the Quann Sisters as our newest Champions! We look forward to collaborating in the weeks, months, and years to come.
