Recent events have made personal safety an issue of importance for everyone, but especially for Women of Color. Have you ever felt frightened or intimidated when out walking alone? Wondered what you should do if approached by an attacker? Worried about becoming yet another home invasion statistic?

Women need not view themselves as helpless victims. Join our speaker panel for a discussion focusing on identifying personal risks; assessing situations for elements of danger; and exploring options for dealing with the threat of violence. Learn how women can develop a sense of empowerment through emotional and physical safety by connecting with resources in our community.
