Students Fight Back! - tech
Venue Requirements: Atriums, busy cafeterias, gyms, outdoor stages and other open spaces are not suitable venues for this presentation. Students Fight Back will be teaching about personal safety & self-defense, which requires a captive audience. A large classroom, ballroom or auditorium is where a presentation of this nature needs to be held.
Sound Requirements: Wireless lavaliere microphone for presenter, handheld mic for volunteer, ability to play music on a CD before the show
Lighting Requirements: Basic Stage Lighting
Other Stage Requirements: LCD Projector connected to the sound system, screen, podium or small table on stage for props, chair on stage, and one male assistant is required for the self-defense demos during our presentations. The assistant must be identified to the presenter at least two weeks prior to the event. The assistant should be a friendly male student or faculty member to be on stage for demonstration purposes. He will not be hit, thrown, or harmed in any way. Demos are in slow motion – no tosses or strikes. A female volunteer is fine if you do not have a male volunteer.
Additional Requirements: Purchaser must provide at least one trained and certified victim advocate (or if advocate is unavailable, a counselor, advisor, or representative from the rape crisis center, counseling center, or women’s center) to be present at presentation and available afterwards as a resource to students and faculty that would like to discuss the program content or their own experiences. Purchaser must also provide a list of all campus and local resources for survivors at least two weeks prior to the event to the SFB speaker to incorporate into the program.
