Members of the local Guardian Angels are trying to help women defend themselves against attackers. They are hosting a free self-defense class this weekend. “There are a lot of rape cases here in Central Oregon. ” David Hart with the Guardian Angels here in Central Oregon says their mission is to prevent crime. A little over a year ago, they patrolled the Bend parks when there was a rash of homeless people getting attacked; and this Saturday they are presenting a free self-defense class in hopes of preventing future rape cases. Hart says when there isn't a lot of crime to stop, they have other important projects too: “We put our attention more on helping elderly, shut-ins, who can’t afford their heating bills in the winter. We bring them firewood, we work with some youth programs, anti-drugs things like that.” The Self Defense workshop is from 2 to 4:30 on Saturday at the Bend Aiki Martial Arts on 18th Avenue next to our studios for Combined Communications.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
