Learn the life saving tips from NRA's award-winning personal safety program

NRA's Refuse To Be A Victim celebrates its 20th Anniversary

Fairfax, Virginia - This weekend you can attend a seminar of the NRA’s award-winning Refuse To Be A Victim program at NRA headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia.

Our crime prevention and personal safety seminar will teach anyone the basics of personal protection not through firearms, but with preventative measures that are easy to implement. Avoid dangerous situations and prevent criminal confrontations at home, in the car, on the phone, online and abroad.

The seminar will be held this Saturday, February 9, from 8:30 AM until 12:30 PM right here at NRA headquarters. Want to learn better ways to keep yourself safe? Refuse To Be A Victim classes present attendees with a variety of common sense crime prevention and personal safety strategies and devices they may integrate into their daily lives.

While the lessons may be based on common sense, you'll need to pass an Online Instructor Training course or attend an Instructor Development Workshop (IDW) in order to teach others these life saving tips.

Well, it just so happens that an IDW is being held immediately following the conclusion of the Refuse To Be A Victim seminar at 12:30 p.m. Instructor candidates must be at least 18 years old and have no criminal record in order to attend.

Developed in 1993 after nationwide requests for crime prevention seminars, Refuse To Be A Victim is now celebrating its 20th anniversary. These seminars have received much praise by members of the law enforcement community these past two decades. With over 3,400 instructors, Refuse To Be A Victim can be found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Trinidad and Tobago. Almost 100,000 men and women have benefited from the program and its life saving message.

Pre-registration for both events is required. Speak with National Coordinator Ruthann Sprague at 703-267-1394 or to reserve a spot.
