Active Bystander Coalition

People's Justice League is working to build a network of supportive environments within the Southeast Ohio region. Each participating space has signed the Active Bystander Coalition Promise and completed our 2-hour training program on bystander intervention and supporting survivors of harassment and assault. If you experience harassment or violence near or within these spaces, the staff should take you seriously, deal with the harasser, and offer additional support resources if you need them. Everyone has the right to feel safe, supported, and respected. You can show these local businesses your appreciation by going to a show, buying a coffee, or having a drink or a meal.



By signing onto this promise, we agree to:
  • Take complaints of harassment, discrimination, and violence against customers or staff seriously
  • Remove any offending parties from our space as needed
  • Ensure our staff, particularly those responsible for security, are aware of our policies
  • Post the “ABC” logo sticker provided by People's Justice League in a prominent place for all employees and patrons to see
  • Use the resources given to us by People's Justice League to better understand the issues at hand as well as the best methods for dealing with them
  • Inform survivors of the option to share their story publicly and anonymously on the People's Justice League Incident Reporter by handing out informational cards



PJL reserves the right to remove businesses from this campaign for failing to uphold this pledge.
