Practical Self-Defense

During her year of service, Jeanne Anne’s goal is to increase public awareness and encourage participation in quality self-defense classes. Utilizing resources from the (AWSDA) American Women’s Self-Defense Association, which is an international organization that is dedicated to furthering women’s awareness of self-defense and rape prevention, she will promote “Practical Self-Defense” through educating the public on its benefits.

According to the FBI, a woman is raped every two minutes in America, and 1 in 3 women will be assaulted in her lifetime. As a result, Jeanne Anne is convinced that every woman should learn how to use her body as a means of defense. No one expects to be attacked; therefore, one must be aware and have a plan of action.
