Prevention. Action. Change. Self-Defense Class Sign-Up

09/12/2021, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In response to the noticeable rise in anti-Asian hate in the United States of America coinciding with the pandemic, UAC and PAC have collaborated to bring our communities a self-defense learning opportunity. Everyone is encouraged to attend. Please invite your friends and family! All ages are welcome.

Event participants will come away with a wide range of verbal and physical tools to address everything from microaggressions to assault in public, private, or the workplace. Participants will be working in pairs and small groups to explore verbal boundary setting and practice physical skills to respond to grabs and other physical attacks.
