Part 2 of CREW Portland’s Mind, Body and Spirit series will focus on further developing the strength and self-confidence of our members through a self-defense workshop. During this 1.5 hour event, skilled facilitators from EMERJ-SafeNow (www.emerjsafenow.org) will share strategies to enhance personal safety and awareness, highlighting the importance of safety planning, self-care, and internal verbal and physical assertiveness.
