Take Back The Night
Take Back the Night is a national event to raise awareness about violence against women and to demonstrate solidarity with survivors. As part of this event, personal testimonials by survivors of sexual violence and/or domestic violence are read either by the survivors themselves or by someone else so that the survivors may remain anonymous.

Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) System The Rape Aggression Defense System is a 12-hour class (usually divided into two sessions) of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a Martial Arts program. The courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth, and is the key to our free lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates.
