Personal Protection and Empowerment Class

Date

Time
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Description

TWU’s Personal Protection and Empowerment class is firmly rooted in the philosophy that the only person responsible for preventing a sexual assault is the person who is going to commit it. Therefore, a victim is never at fault for their assault, no matter what they do. Period. End of story. 

Having said that, we also recognize that for some people, personal empowerment and self-advocacy involves learning any number of personal protection strategies and assault countermeasures. For some folks, simple tasks like walking across campus at night, declining a date, speaking up for a promotion at work, speaking in class, etc. feel daunting and at times, impossible. 

For this reason, some people often report feeling more empowered to navigate their daily lives after having completed a personal protection training course. In that spirit of empowerment, TWU Department of Public Safety is committed to offering workshops that help students who want this type of training.
