Woman’s Empowerment Program

If you are a female and are interested in a free self-defense class, we would like to invite you to join us in our Woman’s Empowerment Program (WEP). This is not like any self-defense class offered. You will learn powerful self-defense skills directly from law enforcement. This class will empower both your mind and your body by learning how to avoid a dangerous situation, recognize danger, and how to defend yourself.

Our next Woman’s Empowerment Program will be on Saturday, February 18 from 9 until 11:30 a.m. at the main courthouse on the second floor, 1450 E. McKinney Street. Those 15 years and older may attend. Registration is required by email at: [email protected]. If you have not already liked our Facebook page, please do so. We post very informative information on a regular basis.
