Safe Night Out

Post

Safe Night Out is one of WEAVE’s Prevention & Education programs that aims to train nightlife staff on how to recognize warning signs of sexual and domestic violence, and how to respond in order to keep establishments safe.

The most common drug used in Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault (DFSA) is alcohol, which supports the need for critically important training for all bar staff to know what the signs of assault look like and how to safely intervene.

To help keep Sacramento safe from sexual violence in our local establishments, WEAVE, in collaboration with the City of Sacramento, is proud to offer Safe Night Out: a free, two-hour training and certification program for bar staff to learn about sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, and bystander intervention.

Each Safe Night Out training is hosted by a local establishment for other local establishments. To register for the next training, click here. For general questions or to inquire about hosting an upcoming training, contact us at safenightout@weaveinc.org.
