GrooveSafe is an initiative to stop unwanted touching and sexual assault at concerts. The mission of this nonprofit is to create a no tolerance environment with an emphasis on building a consent culture. Our initial goal at GrooveSafe is to be present in the live music scene across all genres. This movement brings awareness to sexual misconduct and teaches that a change in behavior starts with a recognition of the problem.
GrooveSafe focuses on educating bands, venues, and fans on tactics that aim to make the live music experience safer.
We do this by educating fans on appropriate interactions, encouraging people to speak up for themselves and their peers and providing training for bands and venues. Currently, as we emerge from a pandemic we will highlight the importance of respect for personal boundaries.
We will keep the conversation going and give everyone a voice and the power of choice.
Our long term goals include educating people on how to respond to assault, how to take action as an active bystander, and tips on staying safe. GrooveSafe wants to offer support and resources to survivors fans, bands and venues.
We want our logo to represent a silent message to stand against the unwanted touching and sexual assault against any gender, by any gender, at any live music event.
Your support will help create awareness surrounding bodily autonomy that empowers individuals' sense of agency and nurtures an environment where concertgoers feel safe and supported by music establishments.
