Survivors Speak

Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of age, education, economic status, sexual orientation, gender or gender identity, race, religion or national origin. It is part of a systematic pattern of dominance and control by one intimate partner against another that often leaves victims suffering alone in silence, isolation, shame, fear and secrecy. It takes incredible courage and determination for survivors to step forward and seek help, and for some, there are still far too many barriers to justice.


SOAR for Justice is proud to launch "Survivors Speak" showcasing real stories of courageous men and women of all ages and backgrounds who have left abusive relationships and persevered. We believe that when survivors speak their own truth, the healing journey will begin.


Please note that due to safety concerns some names and details about the survivors may have been altered.
