About Defend Our Children

Line separator

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 a School Shooting, Bully, Sexual Harassment, and other threats of violence or injury.

We made our efforts publicly known on February 14th, 2021 (3 Years after the Parkland Shooting happened) and have since received overwhelming support. We thank each and every single person that has taken the time to help promote our efforts in protecting children's lives!

We are accepting donations in support of equipping at risk schools with Safe Space Desks. These schools go on lock down once or multiple times a day and immediately could benefit from these desks. 

If your school is ready to purchase the desks, reach out to us here to see how you can get started. 

School Bus & Children

The Safe Space Desk is the modern solution to the biggest safety problem students face throughout their education... physical violence and mental abuse.

When a student realizes they are in danger, then they duck inside the desk and close the door around them. This desk enables the "shelter in place" method to be utilized as the student waits for the Teacher, School Resouce Officer or Police. 

Every Student deserves the right to their own Safe Space for protection against School Shootings, Bullying, Sexual Harrassment, Malicious Fire Alarms and other dangers they could face every day.
