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 under-represented American Black victimized survivor of sexual and domestic violence. By providing education through training it is believed that advocates and community members will better serve the American Black woman from a historical context.
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 would like to thank the following sponsors for their participation in helping us to address Healthy Masculinity. When COVID-19 struck Utah and after the murder of George Floyd, it was necessary to suspend the Healthy Masculinity Workshop planned for April 2020. I replaced the workshop with a 7-week webinar series highlighting 20 Black and Black/Biracial Men addressing “How Spaces Define Masculinity,” from their lens of being an American of color.
