About Defend Our Children

Established in June of 2019, Defend our Children (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit) was formed to do fundraising and equip schools with Safe Space Desks. Safe Space Desks give students instant access to defense the moment they are faced with School Shooting, Bully, Sexual Harassment, and other threats of violence or injury.
