See you there to learn how to use pepper spray correctly and how self-defense teaches us that we deserve to live freely and without fear!
Nearly 65% of hate incidents that occurred from March 2020 to March 2021 were reported by women (Source: Stop AAPI Hate). Women are especially impacted by the rise in hate against the AAPI community; thus, this self-defense workshop intends to empower and teach the power of choice when defending against violence, without judgment or victim-blaming. Along with distributing pepper sprays, we'll spend time discussing our experiences with racial trauma, safety, and how we can empower each other.
