31 Men Against Domestic Violence

31 MenArticle.jpg

​In October, as Saving Grace honors Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we are featuring 31 men from our Central Oregon community. Each man shares why he does not tolerate domestic violence. The idea is that every day of the month you will hear from a different male community member sharing why he cares! Each of these men come from different walks of life, they are different ages, with different professions, but all share the common goal of speaking up to prevent violence and abuse.

Hear from the 31 men below:
