ABOUT US

Igniting the power of women

Empowered Protections & Defense, EP&D, is a multicultural, community based, non-profit organization that seeks to build a safer community for women through prevention and self-defense awareness.     

In view of the ongoing rise in societal tensions and gender-based violence, we believe that our initiatives to educate and empower women of varied ages on the importance of being more aware, alert, and prepared will facilitate the building of healthy relationships, families, and conscious communities. 

To achieve this vision, EP&D will educate through individual and group training within local communities and corporate environments, through community outreach and workshops.  EP&D will offer services in line with our core values of awareness, protection, defense and security.
