Senator Sanders Hosts Sexual Assault Defense Training

In recognition of April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Senator James Sanders Jr. (D-Rochdale Village, Far Rockaway) held his third annual Sexual Assault Defense Training on April 26, 2018 at the Knights of Columbus in South Ozone Park.

"Sexual assault is a serious crime that affects the physical and emotional well-being of survivors long after the attack is over,” Sanders said. “We are here today to raise awareness of this type of violence and do our part to educate as many people as we can in an effort to prevent future incidents from occurring and to encourage those who have been victimized to seek help.”

Avi Avramcheyiv, the founder of the NY Self-Defense Academy, taught Krav Maga, a military self-defense system developed in Israel and showed how to disarm an attacker wielding a knife or gun. The main targets in Krav Maga are the throat, the groin, and the knees.

Providing statistics on sexual assault and its psychological effects was Dr. Coralanne Griffith-Hunte, a human trauma and industrial psychologist and the Long Island Director of Human Trafficking & Domestic Violence for Not On My Watch organization. 

Almost 18 million women have been raped in America since 1998, according to Griffith-Hunte, adding, that 13 percent of female rape survivors will attempt suicide, and one in six American women has survived an attempt, or completed rape, in their lifetime.

Domestic Violence Police Officers from the 106th Precinct Jennifer Martinez and Bennett Choi went over what constitutes a sexual assault as well as the differences between rape and a criminal sexual act. They encouraged attendees to report if they have been victimized immediately to the police.
