Violence

Hi Amy,

I'm giving a speech to persuade my classmates to take action in adding a self-defense course to the high school curriculum. My question was, what are some tips, other than writing to my state representatives, that I can give my classmates if they would like to get involved?

Clare

 

   

Dear Clare,

I think that's great that you are lobbying for a self-defense class in your school. In terms of writing letters -- check out moveon.org -- they have good models of that.

For self-defense classes -- check out empowered.org -- a great group that does these workshops.

Good luck,

— Amy
