Did you know that April is National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month? The theme for this year, according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, is “Embrace Your Voice.” From a blog post in September by Susan Sullivan announcing the theme, she says “Our words shape the world around us. How we talk about sexual violence matters,” spurring forward the theme “Embrace Your Voice.” For over 40 years, SABRE has stood as a proud advocate of women's safety through their extensive line of self-defense products and by teaming up with several philanthropic causes that operate on a global scale. The SABRE team is passionate about prevention and equipping women to fight back and feel safe. With a
variety of safety products, self-defense programs and other resources available, SABRE is dedicated to personal safety on all fronts. “Even in today's modern world there are still women in the fight for their lives,” said SABRE CEO David Nance. “Up to 70% of women globally will suffer a violent experience in their lifetime—potentially more as many assaults and rapes go unreported.”
SABRE is currently partnered with three unique causes dedicated to helping women and children lead safer lives with greater confidence.
- Kuros! A Fighting Chance – For every teal Kuros! pepper spray that's purchased, SABRE makes donations of their police strength pepper sprays to the program. Since 2015, they've facilitated drops in Central America, India, South Africa, and Southeast Asia, donating over $156K in sprays to help women protect themselves against physical and sexual abuse. The bright blue Kuros Key Case Pepper Spray with Quick Release Key Ring is in collaboration with Kuros!
- Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) – SABRE has donated over $40K since 2010 through the sale of their red RAINN series. This network is the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization and has helped more than 2.5 million people since 1994. Supporting the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network is the RAINN Key Case Pepper Spray with Quick Release Key Ring.
- National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) – Since 2008, SABRE has raised $1.55M for National Breast Cancer Foundation through the sale of their pink NBCF line of pepper sprays and personal alarms. The proceeds helped launch their National Mammography Program which has provided 293,031 screening & diagnostic services to women in need across the country. The Pink Key Case Pepper Spray with Quick Release Key Ring is in collaboration with the NBCF.
SABRE has collaborated with these organizations to offer a variety of safety products to help keep men and women alike safe on a global scale.
