CONCORD -- A gathering of more than 400 people celebrated victory over violence at the 23rd annual STAND! Rebuilding Lives Luncheon.
The capacity crowd in the Concord Hilton ballroom honored heroines and heroes who work to prevent or end domestic abuse. The poignant stories of keynote speaker Leslie Morgan Steiner, STAND! client Schylon Stewart, and a flank of Bay Area law enforcement officers and officials engaged in the nonprofit's new Lethality Assessment Program received ovations.
