The mission of Survivors of Abuse Rising for Justice ("SOAR for Justice") is to:

Expand the resources available to survivors of abuse by encouraging future lawyers to choose rewarding careers in domestic violence advocacy and law reform;

Financially support California law students and bar applicants directly impacted by domestic violence and other forms of gender violence through the inaugural SOAR for Justice Scholarship;

Educate the community about the dangers of domestic violence, the failings of the legal system and the need for family court justice; and

Provide a platform for survivors and their children to have a stronger voice for change.



SOAR for Justice's Founder & Director, Dovie Yoana King, shares her story of survival as part of a panel commemorating the 30th Anniversary of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
