EVERGREEN PARK, Ill. – State Rep. Kelly Burke, D-Evergreen Park, and state Sen. Bill Cunningham, D-Chicago, are hosting a free Women’s Self-Defense Seminar on Monday, June 19 at 6 p.m. at Saint Xavier University’s Shannon Center- back gym, located at 3700 W. 103rd St. in Chicago.
“Crime can happen anywhere at any time and unfortunately women are routinely targeted by criminals,” Burke said. “My hope is this self-defense seminar will show how women can better defend themselves if they are ever attacked.”
Burke and Cunningham will welcome a trained law enforcement officer to lead the Self-Defense Seminar, which is aimed at increasing awareness and keeping women safe. This free, interactive seminar will provide information and techniques for protecting yourself from assailants. Those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP by calling Burke’s constituent service office at 708-425-0571, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I am always looking for ways to improve the lives of the residents I represent and I am thrilled to be hosting this free self-defense seminar,” Burke said. “I encourage everyone who can to attend this seminar and then share what you learn with a friend or loved one.”
