I was a student and later a teacher and board member at CAE/BWMA between 1989-1998. This is the TEDx talk I gave about how feminist empowerment self defense changed my life and can change the world.

Hello! Does your organization do any work surrounding matters around gun control?

Want to help stop Trumps racist border wall?
PLEASE SHARE!!!

The Carrizo/Comecrudo Tribe of Texas is standing with “The Butterfly Center” in Mission Texas that is in danger by the Border Wall. The border wall will disrupt the migration patterns of the wild life, the four legged, two legged, crawlers, and flyers. YOU CAN HELP protect the land, water, and wild life along the Rio Grande River. Support by getting in contact with the Carrizo/Comecrudo Tribe of Texas, SHOW UP to help with your presents, or DONATE so we can continue our efforts to try and stop the wall from destroying sacred sites and putting the wildlife in danger.

JOIN MRS. DESANTI’S QUEST: MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
PLEASE HELP THIS HIGH SCHOOL ENGLISH TEACHER GIVE OUR FUTURE THE STRENGTH TO SPEAK UP AGAINST VIOLENCE: R**E, SEXUAL ASSAULT, CHILD ABUSE, IN**ST, HATE CRIMES, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, EMOTIONAL ABUSE.

MY MISSION
To educate my students that violence is a problem everywhere, and SPEAKING OUT against violence is something we need to embrace not shame. They will learn they are not alone, help is available, there is hope, and a path to healing.

ABOUT THE CRISIS
The PosterLine Project is my spin on the Clothesline Project, but with colored paper/posters instead of t-shirts, and is for all violent acts. It will provide evidence that in**st, domestic voilence, sexual assault, hate crimes, and inner violence exists in all our communities. It will be a visual reminder of statistics that we often ignore. It gives a voice to those who may have been forcibly silenced. Hopefully, it stirs action. My students are our future and must be informed about violence in order to circumvent. Information on how to recognize and prevent violence, reach out to survivors, and make a difference in the community will be provided to each student throughout this project. Most importantly, this project provides survivors with a venue to courageously break the silence and make us aware. This PosterLine Project will be a tribute to them.

POSTER DETAILS
Create a poster in the corresponding colored paper, for the specific violence you are Speaking Out against. See colored list below. You can use 8.5x11 paper, since that will be even easier to hang throughout my classroom.

Your poster is visual display with graphic messages and/or illustrations that have been designed by survivors of violence or by someone who is speaking up for a deceased victim of violence. This could be a man, woman or child. You can talk directly to the Attacker, The Victim, your Community. Design it in the voice that represents your mission in spreading awareness and eliminating the shame. The purpose of the Project is to increase awareness of the impact of violence, to celebrate strength, to survive, and to provide another avenue to courageously break the silence that often surrounds victims of child abuse, in**st, sexual assault, violent hate crimes, domestic violence... To know they are not alone!!

Color Paper:
YELLOW: physical assault and/or domestic violence
PINK/RED/ORANGE: sexual assault or r**e.
BLUE/GREEN: in**st or child abuse.
PURPLE: attacked due to sexual orientation, race, or religion.
BROWN/GRAY: emotional, spiritual or verbal abuse.
BLACK: those disabled because of an attack or attacked because of a disability.

If interested/questions please PM me in order for me to give you my schools address for you to mail me your poster.
Please also share this. I would love to surprise my students with a ceiling filled of PosterLine Project Speaking Out Against Violence, from all over the United

Mantra Monday^

Every Monday we post an inspirational mantra and quote, with a special featured #soulcard as a visual to spark off the week. This is a part of our #spiritselfdefense^

Today's soul card is "Sun Beam" encouraging us to conquer negativity by focusing on the positive.

"I am releasing thoughts, beliefs, patterns and situations that no longer serve myself, my health, and my thriving"
iammantra.com

Today, I challenge you to think about yourself as a sunbeam-spreading Vitamin D with every smile and compliment you give and receive. Figure out ways to focus on all of the bright sides of life, not to get bogged down in cloudy days (of course these are necessary too). When the clouds pass, notice how much you can become rejuvenated by positive experiences that uplift you, and bask in that light and happiness. Without the darker, gray times, we may not appreciate the light as much.

Surround yourself with those people that have a positive influence on your life instead of those that are not supportive of your progress. Energy is something that can't be seen, but is felt, and when we share our sun rays then we can energize each other and create new sparks to combat the darker times.

Meditation and/or free write:
Think of the times in your life when you were glowing. What made you feel light and free?

~Enjoy~

Join us Thursday, April 28th for the final installment of our Public Transit Safety Series!

As we finish our series on public transit safety, it’s important to recognize that we are in this together as we traverse the city. We should all strive to be upstanders within our communities by actively intervening if we see others experiencing violence. This two hour interactive virtual workshop will provide a range of strategies and considerations for safely disrupting violence should you witness another commuter being mistreated. We will also take time to consider the effects of experiencing violence and how we can care for ourselves and others after a traumatic incident. While the previous two workshops were very physical, this closing workshop will be more focused on talking through common scenarios and analyzing potential strategies so that we can be as mentally prepared as we are physically.

This is a FREE virtual workshop from 7PM to 9PM!

Join us this Thursday, April 14th for the second installment of our Public Transit Safety Series!

In response to the recent surge in incidents on the subway platforms, this two hour interactive virtual workshop is designed to help New Yorkers be safer while waiting for the train or bus. Train platforms and bus stops present unique safety concerns, so we’re taking this time to strategize how best to keep ourselves safe while we wait for our rides. While we will discuss preventative measures and other strategies, this workshop will heavily focus on physical techniques to respond to potentially life-threatening situations including movement, blocks, strikes, footwork, use of common objects to defend yourself, defense against attacks from behind, and use of voice.

This is a FREE virtual workshop from 7PM to 9PM!
