We envision a world where women live free from objectification and harassment.
More than 600 women are assaulted each day. We need to fight back. We need to step up. We need to advocate for a world where women are safe and free to live boldly, which is what the Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation is all about.
We strive to achieve this goal by providing self defense programs for women, and partnering with organizations that deliver educational programs promoting female empowerment, challenging and undermining gender stereotypes, and providing mentorship opportunities. We believe these efforts will ultimately help reduce violence against women in our society.
Our inspiration? Vanessa Marcotte - a kind, compassionate, intelligent, and philanthropic young woman who was tragically killed at the age of 27 while she was out for a run. Her senseless death fuels our continued efforts.
By joining this important cause, we can work together to make a difference. We hope you'll join our fight.
