Help Me Create Safer Spaces by Teaching Self-Defense for Free

Chances are you know a family member, a friend or an acquaintance who has been the victim of a violent attack, domestic abuse, sexual assault or bullying. If so you may understand how traumatic this was for them.

I was a victim of violence, my family, my friends and those in my classes have been victims. I am sick and tired of violence and that’s why I continue teaching free self-defense classes in my community. I’ve taught over 200 women, girls and those who identify as LGBTQ since 2012. I want to teach thousands more. Since I’m underemployed and the costs are expensive, I’ve started a crowdfunding campaign. I need help sharing it! That’s where you come in!

Would you like to help SHARE my campaign?

Share it on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube or wherever! Blog about it, send it in an email and tell a friend. That’s all I’m asking you to do. If you want to see safer spaces and less violence, please share my campaign, GoFundMe.com/FreeDefense. Thank you.
