Samantha Krop and I co-direct Warrior Sisters Society, a nonprofit dedicated to providing free self defense training, materials, and advocacy to women in need.
This morning, Sam and I presented testimony to the University of Oregon’s President’s Review Panel on Preventing and Responding to Sexual Assault. We emphasized the necessity of training women in physical self-defense tactics, and we received a hugely positive response from University officials, members of the review panel, media, and community members.
Please consider submitting a comment to the review panel in support of Warrior Sister Society and self-defense training more broadly. After the most recent high-profile incidence of sexual assault and blatant rape culture on U of O’s campus, it’s essential that the University take real action to prevent sexual assault. We must encourage the university to fund and implement free self defense training for all women who study at U of O.
