SOAR Sisters Overcoming Abusive Relationships

Dear Survivor Quote 1



Love Letters to a Survivor


In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, SOAR members have wrote “love letters” to  survivors of domestic violence. These love letters come from a place of deep love, compassion, and connection for anyone who has experienced domestic violence. These letters are for survivors, those who love survivors, and those who want no one to have to survive this.

Excerpts of these letters are appearing on SOAR's social media all October. Those who wish to download and print them may post them to public spaces such as libraries, gyms, laundromats, or salons.

If you are a survivor of domestic violence and would like to share a love letter, please email them to [email protected] or tag us on instagram at @soarinri.
