The Door County Community Foundation recently HELP of Door County a Sustainability Grant from the Carol Coryell Scholarship Fund for Deserving Students. This grant supports the Voices of Men educational effort.
Voices of Men focuses on engaging men and boys in the work of ending sexual assault and domestic violence.
“Domestic violence and sexual assault are often thought of as women’s issues,” said Roger Johnson, Board member of the Door County Community Foundation. “Voices of Men works to change that perception and get people thinking about these as human issues and we are pleased to provide this grant in support of that mission.”
