Wow! Thanks to amazing supporters like you, we were able to #RaisetheBar! Because you gave, because you drank with us at happy hour, because you tweeted and took selfies, because you shared our campaign, Collective Action for Safe Spaces raised more than $9,500 through our #DoMore24 campaign to launch the Safe Bar Collective!
Your support will provide CJ, Kiki, Cassandra, and Maria with access to safe and supportive employment in our partner bars and restaurants this summer!
But our work is not done yet — there’s still so much we have to do to make bars a safe space for ALL, and here’s how you can help:
- Donate to the Safe Bar Collective. Missed the campaign but still want to support trans folks of color in DC? Give here!
- Patron our Safe Bars. The full list of all our trained bars can be found here.
- Share the Safe Bar Collective with your networks. We need everyone on board to make bars a safe space for all, especially trans folks of color. Share our campaign on Twitter and Facebook today!
Also, we need people to testify in support of the Street Harassment Prevention Act on Wednesday, July 12th.
Introduced in February, the Street Harassment Prevention Act is one of the first of its kind to establish a comprehensive framework to address street harassment in our community through non-criminal solutions.
Now we need YOU to share your stories of harassment in the District to show the Council how important this act is to community safety. Sign up to testify or submit written testimony here, and we’ll be in contact with resources and support!
From all of us at CASS, thank you.
