Live music is a place for fun, community, and open expression - sexual harassment and assault just don't belong.

We want to live in a world without sexual violence. We believe in music’s power to create change.
Modeling the culture we want is part of that, so we are fighting against sexual violence at shows and festivals.
We have worked with 50+ artists, venues, and festivals to date and trained 1000+ people. Join us?

Crew & Fan Trainings

Train your crew how to identify potentially harmful behavior, intervene safely/effectively, and build skills/confidence. Invite 25 fans to join you at a training.

Do all of the above and more! Work with us to design a sexual violence prevention campaign for your next tour. Programming could include: fan volunteers at each show raising awareness about sexual violence and asking other fans to support the campaign; trainings before some or all of your shows for volunteers and venue staff; pre-show trainings with band + 25 fans in select cities; messaging from stage and social media; partnerships with local rape crisis centers; text hotline; and more. Email Kim Warnick to discuss options.

Help us better understand the scope and landscape of this issue by sharing our survey with your fans. We are committed to including survivor and ally voices.
