Want to feel safer and more confident? Learn self-defense and empowerment skills in a queer environment!

We'll address the range of situations trans and queer people face, from the annoying (intrusive family members or irritating coworkers) to the dangerous, including abusive relationships and hate crimes. Though you may never need the physical techniques, you'll use the confidence, skills, and attitude every day. You'll leave this class with techniques you can use right away.

Anyone can do this! People of all sizes and abilities are welcome. You don't have to be an athlete or martial artist to help yourself be safer.

Who: Trans and nonbinary people, and allies who want to be in a trans-focused and -affirming space.

When/where: There will be four workshop sessions on July 16th, July 23rd, July 30th, and August 6th, from 6-8 PM CST, online. Registration is limited, so please register only if you’re confident you can attend all four meetings.
