The City of Sacramento Office of Nighttime Economy is partnering with local nonprofit crisis intervention center WEAVE to offer training for hospitality businesses focused on the LGBTQ+ experience from 3 to 5 p.m. on June 5 and June 20.
The training will be held at 300 Richards Blvd., room 221.
As part of the “Safe Night Out” training and prevention program, this free two-hour training aims to train staff on learning about LGBTQ+ identities, inclusive language and how to integrate inclusive policies.
“It’s vital that we have training for staff to provide a safe and comfortable entertainment venue for all of patrons,” said the City’s Nighttime Economy Manager Tina Lee-Vogt. “An inclusive, accessible and diverse nightlife will help keep Sacramento’s nighttime economy healthy and thriving.”
Safe Night Out is a WEAVE prevention program that offers a series of training classes for hospitality staff on how to recognize warning signs of sexual and domestic violence and how to respond to keep establishments and patrons safe.
The City also hosts quarterly training to provide information to help nighttime businesses operate safely. Training and information are provided by Code Compliance, Sacramento Police and Sacramento Fire staff.
