Texas Tech students team up with bars to prevent sexual assault

“Because of the ties to alcohol and sexual assault, we wanted to go into these spaces and create safer environments in order to change the culture around sexual assault,” Student Body President Emeritus Hunter Heck said.

“I don’t see any downside to this. It’s just a great way to kind of learn some areas that maybe we weren’t aware of and just find more resources to make people feel more comfortable and safe. And at the end of the day that’s an easy choice to make as a bar owner,” managing partner, Eric Washington said.

“This is a free training. This is an important issue and every bar should desire for their space to be safer and and a space in which students know that their bar staff are looking out for them,” Heck said

“And I think it’d be great for all of us to get together and do our part to kind of do what we can to make people feel safe and comfortable,” Washington said.
