The Center for Anti-Violence Education held a free self-defense course in the gymnasium of P.S. 11 in Woodside on Sunday, November 6.

Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn attended the event, along with more than 60 people hoping to learn useful techniques for protecting themselves against unwanted sexual assaults. The event was in response to several sexual assaults that recently took place in Sunnyside and Woodside.
