In the wake of the #metoo movement and circulating conversations about the safety of our Fountain Square community, The Green Room will be partnering with Raise the Bar-Indiana and Julie Kratz of Pivot Point to host a FREE bystander intervention event. This is open for all community members and will feature a bystander intervention training and discussion on allyship. As a community space, The Green Room is eager to talk about how we can all support each other as this neighborhood changes.
Raise the Bar Indiana is a bystander intervention program for alcohol-serving establishments. Developed in 2012 by Alternatives Incorporated, with input from the Indiana Coalition against Domestic Violence to implement the program statewide, Raise the Bar Indiana aims to empower communities to create safer spaces and take responsibility for intervening in cases of sexual and domestic violence. The program has three main components: education about drug facilitated sexual assault and consent, practice through scenarios to utilize bystander intervention techniques, and action by completing a safety mapping exercise and follow-up action plan.
