Sisterhood of Survivor (SOS) empowers survivors of domestic violence to organize and raise awareness in order to effectuate systemic and social change to end violence against women.
SOS began in 2008, with a small group of women interested in changing the discourse of domestic violence. SOS consists solely of women who understand domestic violence from personal experience. Initially developed as a way for women to educate the larger community about domestic violence, and the way certain policies impact victims of violence, their independent voice and community organizing skills were quickly recognized as valuable to the community as a whole.
