Mission Statement

The Center for Anti-violence Education ( CAE ) works as a catalyst for change in the lives of women, transgender people, teens women, children, and other communities especially affected by violence. CAE 's programs are designed to develop participants' skills, knowledge, and awareness to enable them to heal from, prevent, and counter violence. We do this work to actively create a peaceful, just, and equitable world.

Description

CAE's self-defense & martial arts programs empower women, people of the LGBT community, and youth to heal from, prevent & counter violence. We offer courses in self-defense, karate, and tai chi for women, transgender people, teens and children. CAE's courses for youth combine practical physical self-defense training, boundary-setting role playing (that helps to build assertiveness) and discussions highlighting major issues facing youth - including sexual abuse, violence in relationships, body image, how to be safe at school and in the street, and sexual harassment. Our programs encourage students to find their voices and to realize their own individual potential and their connections with their broader worlds. Always guided by a commitment to addressing the different types of oppression that lead to violence, CAE has long used trainings, discussions, and special programs to turn our anti-racist commitment into reality and to create a community organization that is truly accessible to people from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds. Many of our students attend classes for free or almost-free. Sliding-scale fees and free child-care reflect our bedrock commitment to women, transgender people, teens, and children, families and individuals, of all socio-economic backgrounds.
