Safety Team Update

March 10, 2017

One of the primary beneficiaries of Laura’s March 2017 was The Safety Team, whose mission is to promote the well-being, safety, and empowerment of women by teaching them self-defense and risk-reduction strategies. Executive Director Christine DeBlasio has been keeping us informed of the progress of The Safety Team workshops and reports that they are increasingly in demand, not only for college students but also, especially since the election, for the local Muslim, refugee, and New American community whose safety is being threatened by hate crimes. Laura’s Fund has continued to support the efforts of The Safety Team and urges the community to embrace this program and help it to thrive so it can reach all the many women in need of its life-enhancing, life-saving services.
