Mosquera Teams Up With South Jersey Martial Arts Center for “Operation Stop Women’s Violence"
Assemblywoman Marks Sexual Assault Awareness Month by taking part in Hands-on Self-Defense DemonstrationsAssemblywoman Gabriela Mosquera (D-Camden/Gloucester) on Monday partnered with martial arts experts at Underground Martial Arts in South Jersey to host a special forum for women called "Operation Stop Women's Violence" as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (April).
"This was an eye-opening and inspiring event," said Mosquera. "As we pause to honor Sexual Assault Awareness Month, it's important to take stock of what can and needs to be done to empower more people to protect themselves. Coupling strong public policy with self defense is a great start. I look forward to crafting more laws to protect victims of violence and, even more importantly, help prevent it in the first place."
