To prioritize the health and safety of prevention participants and our staff, The Blue Bench is currently limiting its offerings to a virtual version of our high school program, Uniting in Action: Creating a Culture to Prevent Sexual Violence.

We know everyone – staff and patrons – have more fun when in a safe environment. Active bystander intervention is a promising practice in the prevention of sexual harassment and assault, contributing to safer communities. The Blue Bench Prevention Specialists will offer hands-on, team oriented and tool-based training that staff in liquor-serving establishments can put into practice on their next shift! Together we can keep Denver bars safe from sexual harassment and assault.
Establishments committed to ongoing sexual violence intervention training receive the Safe Bars certificate to recognize their efforts towards a safer bar environment. To see the many benefits of becoming a Safe Bars Partner in Prevention, click here.
