PEACE For Families becomes Stand Up Placer
(Placer County, CA,) - PEACE for Families has been standing up for Placer County residents for nearly 35 years; committed to ending domestic violence, sexual abuse and repairing lives. A strong presence in the community is critical, yet the organization lacked the name recognition this life saving work so deserves. A new empowering name was needed to more accurately convey the mission and strong, action-oriented work happening with survivors right here in Placer County.
As 2012 comes to a close and heads towards 2013, the organization remains committed to women, men, families and the community. They are doing the same critical work with a new name that represents the mission, the place and the life saving work being done. Stand Up Placer - Empowering Survivors. Saving Lives.
"Stand Up Placer provides a better platform to show local businesses and residents how their support of our organization saves the lives of those utilizing domestic violence and sexual assault assistance," said
Ron Lawrence, Stand Up Placer Board President and Rocklin Chief of Police.
Community members, local businesses, staff and survivors celebrated this momentous announcement at their Oktoberfest celebration on Friday, October 26, 2012.
"We encourage the community to embrace this new name," continued Lawrence. "Stand up with us as we inspire survivors and our community to support one another in a shared commitment to safety, self-sufficiency, and strength in Placer County."
