SOAR for Justice

A Year in the Life of a Survivor...


EACH YEAR

1 in 15 children is exposed to domestic violence- 

90% are eyewitnesses to the abuse

EACH YEAR

10 million people are physically abused by an intimate partner-  that's nearly 20 people per minute

EACH YEAR

Up to 60% of victims lose their jobs because of the abuse- that's the equivalent of 32,000 full-time jobs

​EACH YEAR

58,000 children are placed in the unsupervised custody of the abusive parent by the court system

WHY IT MATTERS

Domestic violence has enormous emotional and physical effects on victims. However, it also impact families, schools, workplaces and communities. Domestic violence is everyone's business. We can all do our part to be interrupters and stop the cycle of violence.


SILENCE ALLOWS VIOLENCE










Domestic Violence is a Human Rights Issue

Domestic Violence Awareness Month is a time to recognize survivors and amplify their voices. To commemorate the occasion, SOAR for Justice participated in a panel discussion exploring domestic violence as a human rights issue. We invite you to watch the video in its entirety featuring Dovie King, SOAR for Justice's Executive Director, and other experts in the field, to educate yourself about this important topic.
