About US

The scary truth is that the world is not always the safe, friendly place some of us experienced growing up.

Especially for our girls, the world can be dangerous. In fact, close to 1 in 5 women experience completed or attempted rape at some point in their lives. Sadly, 1 in 3 rape victims are assaulted when they are just 11-17 years old.

In addition, physical and sexual violence against women is a major public health concern affecting 1 in 3 women worldwide, creating lifelong trauma and affecting a women’s mental and physical health.

We provide women with guidance and tools to prepare them to face threats with confidence and fearlessness. We do this by training women in situational awareness, de-escalation, and non lethal Self defense.

We are proud to be working with shelters to aid survivors of domestic violence and child sex trafficking.

Our daughters, wives, and sisters are strong and beautiful. They deserve to be empowered to protect themselves in the name of the values we stand for in this country.

We are spreading a message loud and clear across America that we should raise our daughters to be driven, independent, and strong women unafraid to protect themselves as they unleash their full potential. Join us!

Your donations are vital to our organization to ensure that we empower, train, and educate women all over the country. Your donation will go right to the front lines of training and educating women.

Raising Tactical Daughters is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization and your donation is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law.
