(Los Angeles, CA) – California Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez (D-Los Angeles) hosted a successful free self-defense workshop for women in the 51st Assembly District. The classes were open to women of all ages and taught practical and useful ways to avoid dangerous situations and the basics of how to defend themselves, if necessary. During Assemblymember Gomez's tenure as chairman of the Select Committee on Domestic Violence, he heard from people across the state about issues of personal safety and about steps that can be taken to ensure that no California fears for their safety. He took what he learned from the public to heart as part of developing a holistic solution to address safety, including hosting this workshop as an additional resource to ensure constituents feel safe in their communities.
