the need for Students for self-defense

Students for Self-Defense (S4SD) is the nation’s only national college student organization that mobilizes and equips students with the tools they need to change harmful anti self-defense policies on college campuses.

Despite the annual rise in crime on college campuses, 85% of universities and colleges still restrict or completely ban pepper-spray on campus.

S4SD educates, empowers, and mobilizes college students from across the country to form chapters, address their university leaders, and change policies. Whether that be through petitioning, hosting rallies, or lawsuits.

With your generous, tax-deductible donation, S4SD can continue to recruit, educate, and mobilize college students to change oppressive university policies that put them in danger.
