New York, NY — Playbook Media Group’s Co-Founder and women’s activist Marie Driven launched a campaign for survivors of Domestic Violence. She approached the topic with a particular mission in mind, taking a stand against abusers, reclaiming strength, and restoring confidence. By integrating the slogan We Fight Back into the movement, victims are empowered to face their demons while experiencing a physical release meant to heighten their sense of security through self-defense.

Marie Driven is teaming up with personal trainer Seguy Narcisse @Solfitness7 to offer classes starting on Saturday, June 5th, at 10 AM in Wingate Park, Brooklyn, New York, running through the end of August. All sessions are free, and the first ten people to sign up receive a pair of “fight back” boxing gloves. The initiative is designed to tackle domestic violence head-on and create a platform that gives a voice to the voiceless.

“I want to help other women by offering free self-defense courses. Please join me in the fight to eradicate domestic violence one step at a time!” – Marie Driven

Domestic violence is a complicated topic for victims to discuss, and Marie’s first-hand experience has moved her to vocalize the need to address the issue. She was inspired to focus on survivors’ recovery processes and go public with her own story. The press coverage shed light on the breadth of the matter and the nature of society to ignore how many people are deeply affected by these criminal acts.
