The mission of Safe Bar is to work with local bars & restaurants in raising awareness about alcohol's role in sexual assault, engaging bar owners and staff in bystander intervention, and working together to do our part to prevent sexual violence across Tennessee.
Description: This training will equip you with the tools and knowledge needed to identify and intervene safely when you see sexual harassment or assault at your establishment. You will receive a wealth of resources for ongoing education, intervention, and support.
In general, we recommend setting aside 1.5-2 hours for the training. SAC will work with you to accommodate your unique scheduling needs.
The requirement for being considered a Safe Bar is that at least 50% of staff must participate and be trained with the program. We then will give you the Safe Bar materials, such as drug-detecting coasters, a binder of information and resources for staff members to utilize when someone is in need of help, as well as posters with our crisis hotline number. We also give out Safe Bar window clings to help signal to the public and to potential patrons that your establishment has been trained to act if problems arise.
In addition to offering direct training to individual bars and alcohol-serving venues, SAC also trains community leaders to facilitate Safe Bar Trainings. If you’re interested in being a leader in your local community, join us and become a Safe Bar Trainer!
