Freedom from Sexual Violence

Event: Safety and Empowerment Skills

Safety and Empowerment Skills

The Blue Bench is pleased to present our Safety and Empowerment Skills, in partnership with Reflective Wellness on Saturday, October 5th, 2019.
The Safety and Empowerment Skills class works with participants to develop verbal and physical assertiveness and self-protection skills. The course is open to the public for female-identified, trans-identified, gender non-conforming, and non-binary participants age 13 years old and up.

Our instructors, experienced in self-defense skills, train participants in techniques designed to utilize the strengths of a defenders’ body against attackers in a variety of contexts.

The Blue Bench believes in empowering those who want to learn and practice self-protection techniques with the opportunity to do so in a safe space, with specific attention to the dynamics of sexual violence that disproportionately impacts community members who are female-identified, trans-identified, gender non-conforming, non-binary, and gender expansive. Sexual assault is never the fault of the victim- it is only the fault of the perpetrator who makes the choice to assault another person.

Class Date: Saturday, October 5th from 9:00AM – 4:00PM

Class Location: Reflective Wellness, 13731 E. Rice Pl. #200 Aurora, CO 80015
