S.A.F.E. (Self-defense Awareness & Familiarization Exchange)
"If you were targeted for a violent attack, you are only guaranteed there will be one person there to defend you and that person is you. YOU are your own best defense".
1. To prevent crimes of sexual violence in our communities through programs of education training, focusing primarily on awareness and prevention;
2. To educate women about realistic options that will help them avoid, escape and survive assaults if they do occur.
S.A.F.E. is an unparalleled 2-hour educational awareness, crime-victim prevention program - encompassing Strategies, Options, and Prevention - that provides teenaged & adult women with information that may reduce their risk of exposure to violence and introduces them to the physical aspects of self-defense.
Teaching that "90% of self-defense is awareness, risk reduction, and avoiding confrontation; and only 10% is physical"; and focusing on both mental and physical preparedness, "S.A.F.E." provides women with solid public safety-awareness information to incorporate into their every day lives.
