This group has yet to establish specific objectives and projects. Several have been proposed. If you have feedback or additional ideas, please share them here (Feedback / Ideas).
Safe Places (proposed)
Develop a program, modeled on Durham NC to enable businesses and other organizations to be certified as “Safe Places”.
- A business or organization applies online to be certified as a “Safe Place”
- Employees receive Safe Place training and materials.
- The organization posts a Safe Place decal at the front entrance.
- The organization agrees to provide temporary refuge from anyone who reports being harassed until authorities have arrived.
Create a database and app listing safe spaces.
Centralized Incident Reporting (proposed)
Work with Our Voice, other key providers, to create some form of consolidated tracking
Municipal Human Rights / Hate Crimes Ordinance (proposed)
Pursue a local ordinance establishing that hate crimes include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
