Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in supporting the plight of the victimized American Black woman. Your interest and support is vital to the success of our mission, goals, and vision.
When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.
The mission of the Sojourner Group is to meet the often ignored and unmet needs of the historically traumatized and underrepresented American Black victimized survivor of sexual and domestic violence.
To encourage traumatized victimized sexual and domestic violence survivors to live the second principle of Kwanzaa, Kujichagulia (koo-jee-chah-GOO-lee-ah) — “Self-Determination” —- ‘Define Ourselves, Name Ourselves, Create for Ourselves, and Speak for Ourselves.
To alleviate the trickle down effects of pessimistic thought processes caused by the ongoing impact of historical trauma upon victimized Black Americans and focus on the positive reflections that lead to healthy lifestyles and healthier families.
The Sojourner Group thanks the following business and organizations for their partnership in showing the documentary ‘Resilience.” We reached over 100 people who care about the well-being of children and how childhood trauma impacts the lives of under-represented and marginalized populations. A special thank you goes out to the Salt Lake Film Center for making this all possible. “The Child May Not Remember But the Body Remembers,” Dr. Nadine Burke Harris.
