The #NotMeCA Movement is a local initiative to stop sexual assault and end domestic violence. The sad reality is that the prevalence of these crimes is increasing. As part of an effort to end this crisis, NotMeCA provides assistance for any woman involved in the NotMe program.

We provide funding for any woman who is involved in one of the NotMe programs across California who owns or would like to own a firearm, seeks training, and/or would like to apply for a CCW (Conceal Carry Weapons Permit).

  • If the cost of a firearm is too much, NotMeCA is here to help.
  • If the cost of training is too much, NotMeCA is here to help.
  • If applying for a California CCW is too much, NotMeCA is here to help.

Self-defense and safety should never be cost prohibitive. We want to make sure that everyone who needs the kind of help we provide gets it.

NotMeCA believes the epidemic of sexual assault and domestic violence must be ended. There are many other local resource programs available, and we believe adding firearms protection to women’s options is critically important.

NotMe California is a 501(c)(3), so check with your certified public accountant to see if your donations are tax deductible. The primary mission of NotMe California is our women’s program. We also use may use a portion of funds raised to manage the organization, file lawsuits, promote the organization, educate the public, and support other shooting events that are not necessarily women specific nor directly affiliated with a NotMe program.
