Girls deserve to be safe

Girls are at high risk for violence such as street harassment, dating and partner violence, and sexual assault. 

Our new Girls Empowerment & Self-Defense Program teaches emotional, verbal and physical self-defense to girls ages 12-18, and is offered at no cost to organizations participating in Fall 2018. 

Have You Talked to Your Teen(s) About Healthy Relationships?

Sometimes the important conversations we need to have are the hardest to begin. 

Studies have shown that 1 in 5 high school girls and 1 in 10 high school boys* will experience some form of dating violence before they graduate. Whether they experience it first-hand or through a friend, educating your teen about healthy and unhealthy relationships can help equip them to safely navigate the world of dating.
