How To Change Places Into Spaces People Want To Be: Improve responses to victims of sexual and bias-based violence, promote social norms that reduce the initiation or perpetuation of violence, and build capacity to create and maintain safer environments within communities; create empowerment opportunities for survivors and marginalized identities; provide relevant core services.
When we set out to bring bar bystander intervention training to our local bars in 2015 we quickly found out how difficult it was without the status of a nonprofit. We also learned that the existing programs in the US often do not align with primary prevention principles. After failing to find fiscal sponsorship for the programs we wanted to start we discovered there were many others wanting to contribute to creating services for unconventional spaces too. After officially incorporating in early 2017 we started on the most important part of prevention and survivor services work…listening and learning. Now, our core programs are growing strong.
Listening to the experiences and needs of our community members has connected people in powerful ways. We now have teams of volunteers who are devoted to developing programs based upon the feedback received about service gaps in the community. Our relationships with individuals and partners are most valuable to us. Keeping our organization in the hands of community members as much as possible will always be the most cherished of our values. We will need your help to do that. Recognizing that the ABILITY to fulfill our mission is mission critical, we researched and implemented sound management systems, strong governance principles, and mechanisms to assess and redirect that reflect the future. Flexibility and innovativeness are the benefits of being a younger nonprofit and that is us!
We have instituted our infrastructure and our programs with absolutely zero grants and we’d love to talk with you about why this is so significant. Your support makes a difference. If you’re interested in helping us move these programs forward in your city please let us know!
