4. Share the SAFE Night Out Pledge, Huddle Up guide, and local resources with bars and other alcohol-serving venues in your community.
Why a pledge? The SAFE Bar Network is passionate about partnering with alcohol-serving venues to increase safety because we know that they are already doing things to prevent harm every day. We center the experiences of survivors in our work and ask everyone to join us in creating safer bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and communities.
“A survivors-centered approach means you look at your work through the hearts and minds of survivors of sexual harassment, assault, and abuse. You look at your messaging from every side and you think about the impact that it will have on survivors. Above all, you work to ease pain and not cause harm. At the SAFE Bar Network, we are focused on a survivor-centered approach,” Haleigh Harrold, Executive Director.
SAFE Bar Training conversations are simple, manageable, and they work – but you don’t have to take our word for it. Check out these real-life, Everyday Active Bystanders.
