The Rape Assistance and Awareness Program (RAAP) is partnering with The Phoenix Center at Auraria to bring Auraria students, staff, and faculty the Women’s Self-protection and Empowerment Training (SET). Once a month, day-long classes will be held on campus, and there are five spots free to Auraria staff and students. Contact John Nelson at RAAP to sign up and find out upcoming 2013 dates: firstname.lastname@example.org.
RAAP welcomes all women and girls (ages 9+) to learn, in a safe environment, information and skills to strengthen their awareness and confidence through verbal, mental, and physical self-protection techniques specifically useful for women. SET classes are based on the fundamental principle that empowered, active resistance is effective.* Our classes are taught by well-trained female instructors with a strong background in self-defense and a dedication to the elimination of sexual violence and oppression.
* The use of self-defense techniques is a personal choice; the victim of an assault is NEVER at fault, no matter what actions she chooses to take or not take.
