Action for Safety is a self-defense and violence prevention program for girls aged 10-13. The overarching goals of this national initiative are to increase the number of girls and young women who have the skills and resources to protect their physical autonomy and personal safety; to help girls and young women recognize and claim their right to be free from sexual harassment in neighborhood, school and work environments; and to provide girls and young women with opportunities to act collectively to reduce the level of violence in their communities and in their lives. Girls will discuss the 6 Stars of Self Defense along with participating in hands-on activities.
