EMPOWER WOMEN AND GIRLS WITH A SAFETY & SELF-DEFENSE WORKSHOP
This 1.5 hour workshop led by a licensed counselor and expert ROX facilitator is designed for girls (ages 10 and up) and women to learn critical and evidence-based verbal and physical skills that can be used in coercive or threatening situations. This session is one where girls and women will come together to learn with and from one another and support one another to be safe, strong and courageous. Participants will also learn recent data and statistics, common myths around harassment and violence and tools and resources to increase communication and support in potentially difficult situations.
This is a one time, 1.5 hour course open to any women age 10+ for $20 per person on Friday, July 19 from 6-7:30 p.m. This is brought to you by our partners at ROX.
