Have you ever had to use it?
"I attended your Defend Yourself workshop at [my college] last semester... I unfortunately had to use some tactics I learned from the workshop as I was assaulted [at the beach] this summer. I honestly believe that I avoided a rape from your training."
"It happened at the bar... "
Have you ever been harassed at a bar or club? Have you been the target of unwanted touching? Defend Yourself is joining with Collective Action for Safe Spaces to help make bars and clubs safe and welcoming for everyone! Find out how you can bring us to your favorite hangout here.
What would you like to say
to a harasser?
Defend Yourself students worked with Collective Action for Safe Spaces to create art saying exactly what they would like to say. Photographer Graham Patrick shares them here on his blog, Daily Act of Disobedience. Let us know -- via email or a picture of your own -- what your perfect response would be!
