The Center for Anti-violence Education (CAE)

CAE offers five-week empowerment self-defense course for girls (cis and trans), gender non-conforming youth, and anyone on the transgender spectrum. All programs are sensitive to the needs of survivors. All gender bathrooms are available. Unfortunately, the building is not wheelchair accessible, it requires two flights of stairs. 

The five-week self defense course are held four times a year at CAE (in Park Slope, Brooklyn).

Participants learn:

  • physical and verbal self defense techniques
  • de-escalation strategies
  • boundary setting skills
  • self care and safety tips
