1 of every 4 girls are sexual assaulted by the time they turn 18.
That statistic became a reality in my life 10 years ago when I became a victim of sexual violence. As sad as it may be, I bet some of you reading this email have already become a victim or know someone who is.
My own awful experience with sexual violence has urged me to do something more, to become more than just another statistic and to be more than just another victim. This is where FIGHT BACK DAY comes into play.
FIGHT BACK DAY will be an annual hands-on event that teaches teen girls self defense tactics and empowers them to take a stand against sexual violence.
Here are the details:
WHEN: February 7th at 1PM
WHERE: Twin Dragon Martial Arts, 8066 Crescent Park Drive, Gainesville, VA 20155
WHAT TO BRING: $5 to enter (all proceeds will be donated to a local organization that works closely with victims of sexual violence)
WHAT TO WEAR: Work out clothes – this will be a hands on event where you can participate in self defense training activities
What You Can Do:
COME: This is an event for every past and present #hcpsenior, every high school girl (freshman-senior year) AND all college aged girls.
INVITE: Invite your friends, all of them. The more who come, the better off we will be.
SHARE: I’ll be sharing FIGHT BACK DAY information on my Instagram & Facebook over the next few days/few weeks. Please consider sharing my posts & photos so that together, we can shatter the silence that sexual assault thrives in and empower each other to stand together and FIGHT BACK.
Can’t wait to see you there!
