Safe Bars Denver Returns

As more and more of us emerge from pandemic isolation and begin to gather with friends and family, we at The Blue Bench want to make sure you have fun in a safe and welcoming environment. That’s why we’ve recently relaunched our Safe Bars program!

Safe Bars, a project of Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS) and Defend Yourself in Washington, DC, offers staff working in alcohol-serving establishments training to recognize and respond to incidents of sexual harassment and assault. Safe Bars’ highly-trained facilitators offer hands-on, team-oriented and tool-based training that staff can put into practice immediately.

“Safe Bars was a required course for the brewery I work for and honestly I think it should be a requirement industry-wide,” explained a recent participant. “Not only is the content of Safe Bars valuable for bar staff and bar owners but it also encourages necessary dialogue about sexual violence. I feel much more equipped to support my fellow staff and customers moving forward!”
