The Chamber WBC BREW Presents: Refuse to be a Victim with Ken Kelly
Join us Thursday, February 25 from 10:00am to 11:30am on Zoom. Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce Women's Business Council presents: Refuse to be a Victim with Ken Kelly.
The Refuse To Be A Victim program was developed by the women of the NRA in 1993 in response to women nationwide who requested crime prevention and personal safety information. As the program grew, the NRA received numerous requests from men who were interested in attending the seminars. Recognizing the program’s relevance to both men and women, the NRA voted in 1997 to make the program co-ed. The only pre-requisite for seminar participation is an interest in crime prevention and personal safety. NRA membership is not required.
(During the course, there is no discussion of firearms or gun ownership. It is not a self-defense class. The seminar is focused solely on crime prevention education.)
Ken started RVA Personal Safety Services because as the father of a daughter getting ready to go to college, it got him thinking about her being on her own for the first time and what she’d need to know to stay safe in new and unfamiliar surroundings.
