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.
