To celebrate sexual assault awareness month, Tuesday night, Saving Grace along with Central Oregon Community College and BendFilm are presenting a free film, called "Sissy." This film, written/directed by Bonnie Root, tells the story of Sissy’s mother, Bernie, who dumps Sissy off with “Uncle” Charlie, a family friend and struggling magician, and heads for a small time tour across rural parts of Nevada. Charlie’s mood darkens when he just can’t seem to catch a break. Sissy, with nowhere else to turn, bears the brunt as best she can.  Lauren Bisken with Saving Grace says it's an important film that adults need to see: “Our goal is to get out the awareness, educate the community as to what is happening all over the  country, but especially here in Central Oregon. And this will help do that. Help kind of branch out and lead that conversation, not only watch this film and learn a little bit more what this young woman goes through, but then take it back and be able to tie it to our community." Biskin says after the 20-minute film, they will open up discussion with the writer and executive producer of the film on Skype.  "Sissy" will be shown Tuesday night from six to 7:30 in Hitchcock Auditorium.

The film may not be suitable for all audiences.

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:
