Education and Prevention this April!

Everyone Is Affected by Sexual Violence.

1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed assault in their lifetime. About 3% of American men—or 1 in 33—have experienced an attempted or completed assault in their lifetime – RAINN

“Sexual assault happens in every community. It can happen to anyone, anywhere.  Sexual assault survivors are men, women, members of the LGBTQ community, children, the elderly, people with mental and/or physical disabilities.”

In recognition that our community of food/beverage/hospitality workers is also a centerpiece in this demographic, this April we will be focusing on Sexual Assault Awareness.

Please join us as we educate ourselves, learn, and listen alongside our community partners, in order to create a more sustainable workforce for food/beverage/hospitality workers.

Join our partners at SAVA this April!
