The SOAR Collective

The SOAR Collective aims to mobilize advocates to demand accountability and revolutionize the way anti-violence organizations operate. Using an anti-oppression and anti-racism lens, we work to support victim service advocates while reimagining the movement.

We are three young-ish women (Black, white, and multi-racial Latina) and anti-violence advocates who are ready for change, ready for a revolution, and ready to hold our organizations accountable. For the past five years or so, we have worked with advocates, prevention educators, leadership, and other staff at local sexual and domestic violence agencies. We continue to hear about the pain, disappointment, frustration, and discrimination staff experience on a daily basis–and we can relate because we’ve experienced it ourselves, too.

To make this a reality, we offer consulting and training for anti-violence organizations, and support for advocates via a free group chat, opportunites to share their stories with us, referrals and resources.
