Gavin de Becker, Bestselling Author, The Gift of Fear:
Your work reminds me of this important truth: Everyone might be a target at times, but not everyone must be a victim. I’m honored to be part of what you do.

Erin has honored her friend by starting this program and empowering women. I really think women need to know they can fight back.
“Hi, Gina! Wanted to tell you what an amazing job Morgan did Monday night. She was amusing and very engaging with the audience. You could tell that she had a wonderful connection with ALL the ladies that attended. She made Shannon proud!” – Cindy McNamara, mother of Shannon McNamara, February 2016
“I’d like to thank Bree Swartz for participating in Safe Break on March 9, 2016 at the University of Oklahoma. Safe Break was established in 2004 by two sorority sisters to honor the memory of our daughter, Lisa Wieder, who died during Spring Break that year. My husband and I tell Lisa’s story each year at OU during Safe Break, and Bree’s presentation was a wonderful addition to the overall program. Bree did an awesome job with the limited time given, and we hope she’ll be able to come back to give the entire program at some point. Girls Fight Back is an awesome program and a wonderful way to honor the life of Shannon McNamara. We are thankful to the OU family for honoring our Lisa each year, and we hope we can honor Shannon as well by getting the word out about Girls Fight Back. Thank you again!” – Becky Wieder, mother of Lisa Wieder, March 2016
“I was there with my 14-year-old daughter! So impressive. I am a fire and life safety educator for Massachusetts and can honestly say Nicole’s presentation was by far the best. What a phenomenal organization! Keep up the fantastic work.” -Liz Shannon – Mom from a Nantucket, MA Community Event, March 2015
She was fantastic at engaging students and keeping their attention. Good energy and mixture of activity and lecture. People who we never see at our events came up to us and thanked us for bringing her to campus. – ASHLEY HOFFMAN, Student Programming Board Chair, University of Minnesota – Crookston
GFB is amazing at getting this important information to women in a way that is empowering and engaging. I don’t think that I have ever heard anyone speak about self-defense with that much enthusiasm and humor. – STEPHANIE AHRENS, Baylor University
I’ve worked in Student Activities for some time now, and Girls Fight Back completely blew me away with their presentation. They were prepared, prompt, engaging, and professional. I haven’t been this impressed with an event in quite some time. – SARAH HILTON, Harrisburg Area Community College
GFB is truly sensational and inspirational. I love that she didn’t make me fearful of attackers or of being attacked. Instead, it made me aware of my surroundings, and her techniques made me feel safer. This presentation is one that I would definitely see again. – SUZANNE SMITH, Texas A&M University
Bree was AMAZING!!! She was personable and very knowledgeable. Our guests had a great time and learned a wealth of knowledge that could help save their lives. – CALEB FILS-AIME, Nova Southeastern University

Girls Fight Back was easily the best program I have seen come to Denison since I have been here. It was educational and entertaining. The women who went could not stop talking about it the next day. I will take what I learned from Erin and use it for the rest of my life. – BLAIR DUNLEVY, Denison University
