Becky's Fund, is a national non-profit organization advocating for the elimination of domestic violence, the support of survivors of domestic violence, and the prevention and and education of domestic violence.

"Becoming Your Own Heroine" incorporated arts, music, theatre, and dance to address self-expression and pertinent issues while also teaching the girls what their rights are, both mentally and physically through a self-defense demonstration and lesson.
