At The Blue Bench, our mission is to eliminate sexual assault and diminish the impact it has on individuals, their loved ones and our community through comprehensive issue advocacy, prevention and care.
To truly change rape culture requires a paradigm shift and a complete restructuring in how we think and talk about the issue of sexual assault.
We use a community-based approach to prevention, ensuring schools, businesses, law enforcement and beyond are committed to survivor-centered responses and sexual violence education.
Changing attitudes means changing behaviors, both of which contribute to a healthier, more aware community of active bystanders.
Last month, The Blue Bench launched Changing the Conversation 2020, an opportunity for metro Denver to take virtual action toward building a safer and more supportive community.
Creating art can often be a form of catharsis. This is certainly the case for Jenn Merz, whose series Undisguised is currently on display at the Payge Gallery.
Warren Village, a Denver-based nonprofit that helps low-income, single-parent families make the journey from poverty to self-sufficiency, became the most recent home of a blue bench. The bench, which symbolizes a community commitment to ending sexual assault and supporting survivors, can be found on the porch of the organization’s administrative building.
