I’m really excited about this: Lower East Side Harm Reduction will offer free self defense classes for trans women throughout this summer, from June 3rd til July 1st.  Please forward widely!

I’m also excited about trans women learning self-defense! Obviously this isn’t the answer to the larger issues of violence against trans women. And as a number of recent cases have shown, self-defense is only considered legitimate for certain privileged groups. I still think self-defense training is important. I think all trans women should have access to skills that will help us resist violence against us.

Holy shit I want to go to this so badly

I would go if I lived in new york, but im glad i dont.
