Join the Muslim Community Network and facilitators Christina Tasca and Maryum Khwajaas as we confront fear and violence against women and help each other build community in a time of fear and heightened Islamophobia. Take part in an open discussion as we share experiences and learn a variety of creative ways to feel empowered and supportive of each other. The conversation will be followed by a 45 minute self defense class led by a certified instructor from the Center for Anti Violence Education where we will learn to kick, punch and effectively defend ourselves and our families in a variety of situations.
This workshop is open to all! Space is limited, so RSVP is required!
