Empowering Women With Self Defense, Poetry

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - There's an event happening in Grand Rapids that hopes to empower women in West Michigan. It's called "Persevere -- An Evening of Protection and Poetry."

Chalene Jones joined My West Michigan to talk about the event.

"The idea was born from a recent assault that happened to me," said Jones, organizer of the event. "Martial arts and poetry are the only things that revived me, so I wanted to share these incredible healing tools with all women."

The event is happening Thursday, April 6 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at The Well Being located at 1118 Front Street NE. It's free and open to all ages.

You are asked to RSVP on their Facebook page.
