R.A.D. stands for “Rape, Aggression, Defense Systems.” The program begins by teaching awareness, reduction, risk prevention and avoidance techniques, and finishes with realistic applications of defense tactics.

Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes and bring a water bottle.

The first class on Monday, May 14 has been canceled but the subsequent courses will meet at 5 p.m. and last until 8 p.m. on May 15, 27 and 28.
