Community Programs

The Bar Outreach Project – As a community, it is our responsibility to care for and protect each other in all spaces. This program provides anyone working around alcohol with tools to prevent, identify, and intervene in Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault (DFSA). Together, we can create spaces based in community accountability and consent, rather than harm.

For bars in Buncombe County, Our VOICE provides in-person trainings for $300  – or we can supply guidelines for running a simple, no-cost Pints for Prevention benefit for Our Voice in exchange for the training. 

Also, Bar Outreach trainings can be offered outside of Western North Carolina for an additional cost. If your organization or business is outside of Western North Carolina, please contact us for a quote. 

The Bar Outreach curriculum may also be purchased, please contact us for details. 

 

86 Sexual Harassment in the Restaurant Industry (“86 It”) – The restaurant industry has one of the highest rates of sexual harassment complaints. Currently, the service industry is deeply rooted in power imbalances, gender inequality, and capitalism. This program helps restaurants create a workplace that is based in consent, respect, and empowerment. 

For local restaurants, Our Voice provides in-person trainings. Fees include $300 for the staff training and $400 for the management training (includes informal legal advice), or $600 for both.

 A 86 It training can be offered outside of Western North Carolina for an additional cost. If your organization or business is outside of Western North Carolina, please contact us for a quote. 

The 86 It curriculum may also be purchased, please contact us for details. 

 

Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace – Drawing the line between flirting and harassment, this program examines the spectrum of sexual misconduct and equips staff with the ability to intervene in nonconsensual exchanges, assert personal boundaries, and understand their rights. Additionally, this training guides managers and business leaders in their efforts to establish a safe, healthy, and consensual work environment. 

For local businesses/organizations, Our Voice provides an in-person training for $300. If this is out of your budget, please contact us to discuss a discounted rate. 

 

The Gender Galaxy (Community) – Discussions about ending sexual violence frequently focus on cisgender men and women. However, transgender and nonbinary folks experience much high rates of sexual and other forms of violence. One way to help end all forms of violence is to ensure your work or community space is safe and affirming for folks of all genders. This program is designed to discuss the ways sexual violence affect the LBGTQIA+ community, promote understanding of gender, and help communities create affirming spaces. 

For local businesses/organizations, Our Voice provides an in-person training for $300. If this is out of your budget, please contact us to discuss a discounted rate.
