Empower to Power®
“Live in choice, not by chance”™


Founded by Geneva, Empower to Power® is an organization that provides on-site programs incorporating self-advocacy, communication strategies, fitness, real scenario self-defense tactics, situational awareness, breath work, and grounding techniques in order to give participants a stronger mind/body connection and skills to prevent sexual assault and violence. Our mission is to enhance our students’ abilities to live in choice, not by chance™. For more information, please visit www.empowertopower.org

On April 29, 2017 during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Geneva Simms, founder of Empower to Power® “live in choice, not by chance”™ teamed up with Alberto Ortiz and trainers at Work Train Fight to provide a donation-based self defense class benefiting the NYC Alliance Against Sexual Assault. Below are some photos and a video from the event:
