Help Me Make A Much Needed IMPACT

If you know me, you know how passionate I am about women+ safety and self defense. 
In all my years taking and teaching self defense, I've never seen another organization provide more realistic, holistic, and trauma-sensitive self defense training than IMPACT Bay Area. They truly embody their beautiful powerful Mission, Vision, and Values to reduce violence, promote healing, and create a courageous future where all people are empowered to live fuller, safer, more confident lives. 
The pandemic was hard on everyone, and IMPACT is no exception. So we've really relied on generous donors like you to help us continue offering crucial classes (with our Pay-What-You-Can pricing) in spite of the evil COVID-19. We know the pandemic has been hard on our community and our students too. So we also need your help sustaining our current programs and launching powerful new programs to support our diverse community. 

Help me empower our girls and women+ to stand up for themselves, stay safe, and confidently decide what happens to their bodies. That's more needed now than ever given what's happening in the world. 
Let's give the gift of effective boundary setting, personal safety, and physical self defense skills to everyone and anyone who needs it. Personal safety is a right, not a privilege.
I can personally vouch that IMPACT does an incredible job furthering this mission. I've seen it in the IMPACT classes I've taken, the hard work of our team and fellow board members, and the skills I've developed here that have made a huge difference in my own life. 
I have a personal goal to raise a total of $4,000 by the end of this year. 
Please help me reach that and enable more women+ to learn how to speak up and defend themselves.
Every donation helps bring personal safety, self defense, and empowerment training to people who need it.
Every dollar makes an IMPACT.
