Heart of Hospitality is committed to improving safety in drinking establishments by training staff to recognize and safely address sexual and other forms of harassment.
Heart of Hospitality is a collaboration between several local violence prevention nonprofits and passionate service industry professionals hoping to create safer, more inclusive spaces. We hope to empower service industry staff to make a change in their community and for customers to be able to enjoy their spaces more by first feeling safer in them, regardless of identity. We achieve this through dynamic, interactive conversations and by tailoring lessons learned to each individual space.
Heart of Hospitality partners include: Through These Doors, Sexual Assault Support Services of Southern Maine, Hunt and Alpine Club, Prevention. Action. Change., Speak About It, the Portland Police Department, and the Amy St. Laurent Foundation.
