Director Bongho Lee presented Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones and Chambers County Sheriff Jeff Nelson with a check for $5,000 to go toward the R.A.D. programs in both counties last week. This donation will make a huge impact for the R.A.D. program, helping to continue growing and improving the program to help more women in the area feel safe and empowered.

The Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. R.A.D. is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. It is open to any woman age 13 or older.
