A Faithful Response to Violence Against Women and Girls
First launched in 2014, this powerfully transformational, large community event was created

from multiple faiths. Additional outreach into the women’s community provided appropriate
resources for those seeking help.

Violence against women and girls will not end until men speak out, until fathers speak to their sons and to their grandsons and to their friends and to other men. We wanted their voice in Saving Grace, but needed to create a safe space to protect the vulnerability of the women present. So this piece became a film.
